SAN ANGELO – The week long rainy spell across West Texas will come to an end late Saturday and early Sunday after another wet Friday night and Saturday.
Potent storms Friday morning in the Big Country and along the I-10 corridor from Ozona to Junction will track off to the east southeast throughout the day. Waves of showers and thunderstorms will break around midday in the San Angelo area then kick up again near sunset just in time for Friday night football.
The best chances for rain will be in the Abilene area but showers and thunderstorms should blanket most of West Central Texas.
There is 70% chance of rain in San Angelo Friday and Friday night with up to an inch of rain possible. The rain chance drops to 60% on Saturday, then chances diminish Saturday night and end Sunday.
The main hazards over the weekend will be ponding of water on roadways and flash flooding over already saturated grounds. Street flooding will also be a concern in San Angelo and Abilene. The stronger thunderstorms will contain lots of cloud to ground lightning, damaging winds and even some hail.
Temperatures for the next three days will be below seasonal averages with highs in the lower to mid 80s and lows in the 60s.
