ABILENE, Texas -

     Saturday was a beautiful day with mostly sunny skies across the entire viewing area. Temperatures topped out in the lower 90s on average. Our normal high is 94 degrees. We are tracking a weather pattern tonight that should leave us with fair to partly cloudy skies right on through the overnight. Readings will bottom out in the mid to upper 60s yet again so expect very comfortable conditions.

     Sunday we are forecasting a mostly sunny picture to wrap up the second half of the weekend. Temperatures look to be a degree or two higher with an afternoon high of 93 expected. The expectation is for no rainfall on our Sunday. Light winds from the southeast at 5-10 mph will dominate.

     Monday does not bring much change to the table as mostly sunny skies look very likely with again no significant weather makers in the forecast. We will leave rain out of the equation through Monday night. Temperatures up around 93 or 94 can be expected.

     We are tracking a tropical wave which looks like it may impact the southern Texas coast on Tuesday. It does not look like a big rain event for us here in the Big Country but we will watch the exact track of this disturbance. If it tracks a bit farther north we may look to add a few showers or at least a few more clouds into the forecast for later Tuesday into Wednesday. The official forecast at the moment calls for just partly cloudy skies on Tuesday and Wednesday with a slight shower chance in extreme southern sections with highs again staying around the 93 / 94 degree range.

     Thursday through next Saturday we will be influenced by southeast winds and a noticeably more humid air mass. Some tropical moisture entrained into the flow off the Gulf may lead to some showers and thundershowers as we head into Friday and Saturday but leaving rain chances around 10% at the moment. Partly cloudy to partly sunny skies will dominate this period with highs in the lower 90s.
