Afternoon weather forecast for Friday, May 23, 2014.
It was another warm and breezy start to the day as temperatures only dipped down into the low 70's. Warm and mild will be the trend all day today as cloud cover keeps conditions in the low 80's. Winds will stay out of the southeast 10 to 15 continuing to pick up moisture off the gulf. Along with that pacific flow as brought even more as low pressure off southern California moves east. As a result we've already seen a few showers and thunderstorm pop up to our west along the dry line. Most of the activity has been to the north across the panhandle and to our south. Today watch for 50% for thunderstorms in the Concho Valley, lingering all the way through the weekend. Some of the models are showing decent rainfall rates with 1 to 3" possible over a five day period. Much more will be to the north in parts of the Big Country, but better than nothing. Temperatures will stay in the low to mid 80's as well until that low moves through and high pressure builds back in. That will help conditions warm back to the 90's by the middle of next week.
