ABILENE, Texas -

For tonight, skies will clear throughout the evening, allowing temperatures to fall into the mid 30s. A Frost Advisory is in effect for much of the northern Big Country until 9 A.M. Monday morning.

For the start of the work week, the sun will warm things up to the upper 60s. We'll see winds from the southeast at 10 to 15 mph. Lows Monday night will fall into the upper 50s.

The warm-up continues Tuesday as afternoon temperatures top out in the low 80s under clear skies.

We're tracking a cold front that will drop down from the north overnight Tuesday. This front won't bring us much in the way of rain chances during the morning but it will stall across the area during the day. There is a slight chance for scattered afternoon showers along the stalled front.

By Thursday, we're back into another warming trend as highs climb into the low 80s.

We're tracking an upper level low pressure system that will begin to near the area. As it does, we'll see an influx of moisture which will keep us under mostly cloudy skies along with rain chances into the weekend.

The best chance for rain comes in Friday and Saturday ahead of a Pacific cold front.
