Today will be a very warm and breezy day. The chance for thunderstorms will return late this afternoon and continue through the night. Expect two rounds of storms. The first will be in response to dry line movement during the afternoon. The second will be in response to a cold front that will move through our area during the evening before exiting tomorrow AM. Severe weather will be possible for both rounds. The main threat for severe weather will be in the Eastern Big Country and Heartland this evening through the early AM hours. Main hazards are large hail and damaging winds. The eastern Big Country is in an Enhanced risk for severe thunderstorms. This means that numerous severe thunderstorms will be possible. Central portions of the Big Country (including the city of Abilene) are in a Slight risk for severe thunderstorms. This means that scattered severe thunderstorms will be possible.
The aforementioned cold front will clear the area Wednesday morning. The rest of the day will be sunny and seasonable.
