SAN ANGELO, Texas — The National Weather Service (NWS) in Abilene/San Angelo is watching the forecast carefully Wednesday afternoon. The mercury will rise to the mid-to-upper 90s with mostly sunny skies. 

While that might not seem so bad, or manageable for West Texans, the dew point temperatures will be high making it feel a lot hotter than the actually air temperature.
