Tracking shower chances for the start of the work week


ABILENE, Texas - Isolated t-shower chances will persist through at least Tuesday afternoon. Afterwards, we should return to mostly sunny skies for the rest of the work week.

The t-shower chances are being caused by an upper level low circulating over the Big Bend region of Texas. As it spins itself out over the next 48 hours, some showers and thunder, although isolated, will be possible.

For today, we should maintain partly sunny skies for most locations with mostly sunny skies being present in the northern half of the Big Country. A slight chance for t-showers will be possible for areas west and southwest of Abilene. Temperatures should stay in the low 90s with south-southeast winds at 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight, expect partly cloudy skies and temperatures cooling to the mid and lower 70s. Winds should remain south-southeasterly at 5 to 10 mph.

We are tracking a frontal boundary that may make it to the edge of Big Country but not pass through the area. However, this front could focus another chance for t-showers during the day for all parts of West Central Texas. Partly sunny to mostly sunny skies are also forecast with high temperatures in the low to middle 90s.

Rain chances are removed from the forecast starting Wednesday as the ridge of high pressure begins to rebuild and center over Texas. This should bring about mostly sunny skies and temperatures warming to the middle 90s on Wednesday to upper 90s Thursday through Sunday.
