ABILENE, Texas -

The cold blast of air will help lows tonight fall into the upper 30s and low 40s under cloudy skies. We'll see north winds at 10 to 15 mph.

For the end of the weekend we're tracking another cloudy day with highs back into the low 50s. Sunday night, temperatures once again fall into mid to upper 30s. Look for winds from the northeast between 5 and 10 mph.

Monday, we'll see some clearing as an area of high pressure begins to push to the east, taking the clouds with it somewhat. The peeks of sunshine and southeast winds will help us warm into the upper 60s and low 70s. Lows Monday will fall into the mid 50s.

The warm-up continues Tuesday as highs reach into the low 80s but a cold front will push through the area early Wednesday morning keep highs in the afternoon in the upper 70s.

The cold front will stall to the south and keep slight rain chances in the forecast throughout the day on Wednesday.

We're tracking an upper level low that will begin near the area Thursday. This will help pull moisture up from the south and keep rain chances in the forecast heading into next weekend. Highs Friday and Saturday will top out in the low to mid 80s.

A Pacific cold front will push through the area Saturday. This won't bring much of a cool down but it will keep rain chances in the forecast next weekend.
