.SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Sunday)

The upper level ridge centered overhead has resulted in sunny skies
and very warm temperatures again today. Temperatures were mainly in
the mid to upper 80s, with a few lower 90s just north and east of
the Big Country. The record highs today for both San Angelo and
Abilene is 91 degrees set back in 1950. The records will probably
just be out of reach, but will continue to monitor. Expect clear
skies and light winds again tonight, with overnight lows ranging
from the middle 50s south, to the lower 60s north. Another very warm
day on Sunday with highs mainly in the mid 80s to around 90. Low
level southerly flow will increase, with speeds of 10 to 20 mph.

.LONG TERM...

(Monday through Saturday)

The upper level ridge in place across the Southern Plains this
weekend will give way to a broad trough by Tuesday. This allows a
cold front to drop into West Central Texas for Tuesday Night and
Wednesday. Low level moisture riding up and over the frontal
boundary will produce a few showers and storms, mainly across the
are east of an Abilene to San Angelo line. Moderately cooler air
mass behind the front too, with afternoon highs dropping about 10
degrees from Monday to Tuesday afternoon, although that is really
just getting back down to normal.

Much weaker upper level ridge follows the trough through the area.
Guidance suggests temperatures pretty close to normal with highs
in the 70s and lows in the 50s. Dry for late in the week and into
the weekend.
