ABILENE, Texas -

After a warm end to the weekend, look for a mild night on Sunday.

Temperatures will start in the upper 50s by Monday morning with patchy fog developing before sunrise.

We're in for another unseasonably hot day Monday with a good mix of clouds and sun. Look for highs in the mid to upper 70s.

The dryline will approach our area ahead of the next cold front, bringing in rain chances Monday night and into Tuesday morning.

The best shower and storm chances look to stay east of the area but there's still a good chance for some showers in the Big Country before the front moves through, Tuesday afternoon.

Behind the front, we're tracking cooler temperatures with highs in the mid 60s, along with very breezy winds. West winds will be gusting in between 20 and 30 mph Tuesday afternoon, creating a fire danger.

Even if your county is not currently under a burn ban, outdoor burns are discouraged.

Temperatuers Tuesday night will fall into the mid 30s. Wednesday, we'll only make it into the mid to upper 50s.

Thursday, we'll see morning temps in the mid to upper 30s with afternoon highs back into the mid 60s.

High pressure will keep clear skies and dry weather in the forecast through the next weekend.

A front will stall across the region Thursday night with temperatures in the low 30s by Friday morning.

Temps are slightly cooler Friday, only climbing into the low 60s by the afternoon.

Saturday, we're tracking another front that will stall along the I-20 corridor. We'll see morning temps in the mid to upper 30s before warming to around 60 degrees by the afternoon.

Southerly flow will bring in moist air, bringing about an increase in cloud cover Saturday night and into Sunday.

We'll see a mild day Sunday with morning temps in the upper 30s and afternoon  highs in the mid 60s.
