High school football teams around the region are moving their games to Thursday due to storms that have been forecast for Friday.

Six games involving Concho Valley schools — Wall at Sonora, Mason at Jim Ned, Dublin at Brady, Cross Plains at Christoval, Bronte at Santa Anna, and Rochelle at Eden — have all been bumped up to Thursday to try and get ahead of the rain.

Dublin-Brady and Cross Plains-Christoval are set for 7 p.m., while Wall-Sonora, Mason-Jim Ned and Bronte-Santa Anna are still scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Rochelle-Eden's varsity game will start 30 minutes after the conclusion of the junior varsity game, which is scheduled for 5 p.m.

Chris Daniels, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in San Angelo, said an upper level storm system moving in from the west combined with abundant moisture and a weak cold front will produce thunderstorms, and possibly some local flooding.

Rain is expected over "all of West Central Texas, including the Big Country and Concho Valley," he said.

The main threat is locally heavy rainfall flooding streets and low-lying areas, he added.

Though there will be some rain Thursday, the bulk of the storms will be Friday and should move to the east by Saturday, Daniels said.
