ABILENE, Texas -

A quieter weather pattern will settle in after tonight's storms move through.

Showers and thunderstorms are developing along a dryline that's pushing east across the region.

During the evening hours tonight these storms will continue to move east, out of our area.

A reinforcing cold front will overtake the dryline and usher in much cooler temps by sunrise Sunday. We'll cool off to around 40 behind that front with a breezy northwest wind at 15 to 20 mph.

During the afternoon on Sunday, we'll see plenty of sunshine with highs climbing into the upper 50s. Strong northwest winds at 15 to 25 mph will elevate the fire danger as well.

We'll cool off quickly Sunday night with lows finally dropping to around 30 degrees.

Monday, highs are right back into the low 60s under sunny skies. We'll cool into the upper 30s Monday night.

High pressure and dry air will combine to form a quiet weather pattern for the week ahead.

Beginning Tuesday, afternoon highs will climb into the mid to upper 70s and stay there through next weekend.

At night, the dry conditions and clear skies will allow us to cool quite a bit, down into the low to mid 40s.
