Good evening, West Texas! Is it April or February out there? I broke out my winter coat again, something I didn't think I'd get to wear again for a while. Highs this afternoon across the Permian Basin were in the mid 40s to mid 50s, well below average for West Texas in April. We've also seen off-and-on showers today that really didn't lead to all that much rainfall.

Tonight, temps look to drop into the upper 30s. We'll see a tiny bit of clearing around midnight, but clouds will build back in and we'll be overcast tomorrow. Shower chance dwindles overnight, but returns tomorrow morning around 8 or 9. Off and on showers look to be the name of the game, and it's only about a 20% chance, but our week of shower chances continues and tomorrow won't be any different. Highs look to be a bit warmer, in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Most of next week will be cool, with highs in the 60s. A cold front comes through Tuesday morning and will bring with it very breezy conditions for a couple of days, not really any precip chance. The pattern looks to return to a much warmer one beginning on Friday as we warm into the high 70s before getting above 90 degrees again nine days from now.
