Satellite shows tons of cloud cover this morning, with rain staying north of I-20, just north of Seymour and north of Throckmorton. Temperatures this morning are rather mild, but they won’t move much today due to thick cloud cover and rain chances. A southerly breeze continues to crank in more moisture up from the Gulf and wind speeds are much lighter this morning, sustained anywhere between five to fifteen miles per hour. Furecast shows showers and storms becoming more numerous throughout the day, but keep in mind not all of us will get wet, the rain will be rather scattered. Severe chance is there, but remains rather low. Models show a lull in the activity tonight before picking up the pace again on Saturday, especially after lunchtime. Severe chances move a little bit farther east tomorrow, with gusty winds possible. This system is very slow moving, bringing us several rounds rainfall on and off again over the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 70’s and low 80’s on Saturday and Sunday. It will also be humid. Rain totals could range anywhere from three inches plus northwest of Abilene to an inch in Brownwood. Abilene is in the middle, with a couple inches of rain possible. For today temperatures will be in the upper 70’s with periods of rain, and southerly winds. Tonight temperatures will be in the mid sixties with ongoing rain chances, but more likely during the day tomorrow. Rain chances are possible in the Heartland today too. Seven day shows several chances for rain, especially this afternoon and on Monday. Unfortunately the holiday looks rather wet for any outdoor activities. We’ll clear out by the middle of next week. Some of the models keeps the low around longer than others.
