Weather Forecasts

This Morning: A weak cold front is pushing south across the Big Country this morning, resulting in a few isolated showers and thunderstorms immediately ahead of it. No severe weather is expected as these storms move south through morning, but dangerous lightning, heavy rainfall leading to localized flooding, brief gusty winds and small hail are all possible with any storms. Thunderstorms will exit the region before lunchtime today as the front continue southward through the morning. Temperatures are in the 70s across the Big Country as winds are switching to out of the north around 5 to 15 mph behind the front. 

This Afternoon: This morning’s front will only leave us a few degrees cooler than yesterday, still warming into the mid 90s across the region today. 93° for a high in Abilene. Skies will remain sunny to mostly sunny this afternoon with northeasterly winds around 5 to 10 mph by this evening. 

Tonight: Skies will remain clear overnight with light easterly winds around 5 to 10 mph. Temperatures will fall into the lower 70s by tomorrow morning. 

Looking Ahead: Temperatures start warming back up again tomorrow as we climb back into the mid and upper 90s across the Big Country. Temperatures will continue to warm through middle and end of the week as Abilene goes back to school on Wednesday. Highs will reach triple-digits again for some by Thursday and into the weekend as skies stay sunny with dry conditions into the weekend.
