Rain and more rain, at least until early Saturday

An upper-level storm system from northern Mexico is bringing showers and maybe a thunderstorm or two into the Concho Valley Thursday and Friday. Light showers are possible through the morning hours Thursday with rain chances increasing in the afternoon.

“Showers will move east to west.” Patrick Doll, National Weather Service San Angelo meteorologist said. “We’ll see rain chances increase through the day. For San Angelo, after 4, chances will increase more.”

Doll said that rainfall totals should be around 1/4 to 3/4 inches Thursday. According to the NWS morning briefing by meteorologist Mike Johnson, no severe weather is expected Thursday.

Temperatures will remain in the lower 60s for highs and the lower 50s for evening lows. Winds as high as 30 mph could be associated with the rainfall moving through the area.

Johnson said to expect a cool and wet Friday. Widespread showers are forecast with rains expected to taper off Friday night into early Saturday. Rain-cooled air will keep temperatures in the 60s during the day Friday, he said.

Warmer temperatures should arrive in the area Saturday with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday are expected to be dry with highs in the 80s.
