This Morning: Heavy showers and thunderstorms are moving through the far southeastern Big Country this morning that could drop up to a few inches of rain, causing localized flooding. Otherwise there is a small chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms across the Big Country this morning. Temperatures are in the 70s across most of the region with mostly cloudy skies and light winds.
This Afternoon: Rain and thunderstorm chances will increase after lunchtime today with the potential for moderate to heavy rainfall in some isolated storms. Temperatures will stay in the upper 80s and lower 90s for most across the Big Country today. 87° for a high in Abilene.
Tonight: We will still hang onto the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms overnight tonight across the Big Country with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures cooling down into the upper 60s.
Looking Ahead: Rain chances, totals and locations have changed over yesterday morning. Rain chances have been lowered just slightly due to the sluggish totals and coverage over the past couple of days. Long range models suggest that the heaviest rain totals will now be more confined to the southeastern Big Country through the middle of next week. These are areas where extreme drought has returned to however. Temperatures will continue to fall into the weekend with highs as cool as the upper 70s on Sunday.
