Mild temperatures and dry for the rest of the work week, then rain this weekend.
Abilene's official high Tuesday was 84 degrees, and that's about what you can expect Wednesday through Friday. Morning lows will range from 55 to 58 the new Wednesday and Thursday morning but a return of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will increase overnight lows Friday through the weekend. Highs this weekend should be around 80 each day. The chance for rain is at 30 percent right now, but I'm seeing a few signs and forecast model trends that indicate we may be able to raise the rain chance, but I want to evaluate data Wednesday before doing that. With a front moving into the area, and upper level disturbances coming over from the southwest, it appears Saturday through Monday will give us several chances at rain.
