(Today and Tonight) 

A cool fall day is in store for West Central Texas today, with light 
winds and afternoon highs ranging from near 70 degrees across the 
Big Country, to the lower and middle 70s elsewhere. A weak 
disturbance will approach from the west later this afternoon. Ahead 
of this feature we'll see increasing clouds from west to east as the 
day progresses. A few showers and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm 
may develop over southwest sections late this afternoon, then a few 
showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible mainly across 
northern sections overnight. Precipitation is expected to be light 
through tonight, with most areas seeing 1/10 inch or less. 
Temperatures will be warmer tonight due to extensive cloud cover, 
with lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s. 

(Friday through Thursday)

Models continue to indicate changes in the forecast for this 
weekend and into next week. The remnants of a tropical system 
(Sergio) may move across El Paso and then on into North Texas and 
Oklahoma over the course of Friday night and Saturday. Some 
afternoon thunderstorms are possible on Thursday, but the activity
associated with this disturbance will mark the beginning of a 
period of potentially heavy rainfall. 

Another period of potentially heavy rainfall may redevelop Sunday
afternoon into Monday. An upper level trough developing over New
Mexico could bring the needed lift to develop showers and
thunderstorms. This is in addition to a cold frontal passage on
Sunday as well, which will help provide some of the needed lift.
Temperatures may be much cooler on Monday with highs only getting
into the upper 40s across the Big Country and the lower 50s
