As of 6:32 AM, a cold front was slowly moving through the Big Country. It was mild and mostly cloudy. Most areas were in the low 70’s, however areas north of the front were in the middle 60’s. The radar was showing some isolated showers along the front.

A NW to SE moving cold front will clear our area around noon. Showers and storms will be possible along the front with the best chance being in the SE Big Country and Heartland. Those areas will see storm chances late this morning and early this afternoon. Isolated strong to potentially severe storms cannot be ruled out. Cloud cover will then clear as temperatures warm into the low to middle 80’s. There will be a slight breeze out of the northwest.

Overnight, temperatures will be on the cooler side. Expect morning lows in the middle 50’s under clear skies. There will be a light south southeast breeze.

Dry weather with a summer-like heat wave will then settle in. Friday will see highs in the middle 90’s. Triple digit heat is forecasted for Mother’s Day Weekend. High temperatures records may be broken. It will be windy and dry. Fire weather will be a concern.

Hundred degree weather will continue for Monday. We will cool a little on Tuesday as storm chances return.
