The good news is that we've finally warmed up a bit across West Texas as high temps are pushing into the low 60s! The bad news is that most of the rain from last night and this morning has missed Midland-Odessa to the south. Light rain has fallen across the mountains, Trans Pecos, and southern Permian Basin, but has generally stayed south of I-20.

Tonight, one last batch of showers will be possible in West Texas. But once again, most of the moisture will stay south of Midland-Odessa, only giving us a 20% chance of light rain. Rain chances of about 40% are possible in places like the Davis Mountains to Fort Stockton to towns such as McCamey and Big lake. Temps will be in the 50s this evening and fall into the 40s overnight. 

For Friday, the sun will come out for most of us and high temps will rise into the low to mid 60s...so enjoy the day! This weekend's weather also looks pleasant, with highs in the upper 60s on Saturday rising to near 70 degrees on Sunday. There's a slight chance of showers & storms in the eastern Basin on Sunday, but most of the activity will stay east. 

A little cold front will move through Sunday night and into Monday, resulting in high temps in the upper 50s to start next week. Cool temps with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s will stick with us for much of the week, under mostly sunny skies.
