It appears we could see showers across the area down around San Angelo by early Thursday morning, but as the day goes on, showers and storms should become more numerous across the entire area.
As we get into Friday, a cold front will move across the area, collide with abundant moisture courtesy of tropical storm Manuel, and drop locally heavy rain.
Flash flooding is possible, especially on Friday. Already we have Scurry and Mitchell counties across the western Big Country in a Flash Flood watch from Thursday morning through Friday evening.
It's likely that rain will affect both Thursday night and Friday night football games.
Rainfall totals could reach 1 to 2 inches or more, so stay alert to rapidly changing weather conditions the next two days.
Temperatures are forecast at 84 for the high Thursday and only 80 for the high on Friday.
The cold front Friday will drop temperatures into the low 60s by Saturday morning. Highs on Saturday are forecast at 83 with 58 Saturday night and 83 again on Sunday.
The weather this weekend should be wonderful with fall-like temperatures just in time for the first day of autumn on Sunday.
