ABILENE, Texas -

Cloudy skies stay with us overnight Saturday as moisture filters in from the Pacific Ocean.

A disturbance to our west will move across the Rockies and into the Central Plains tonight bringing slight rain chances to our area this evening.

A warm front is moving north towards the Big Country so things won't cool down much by Sunday morning.

We'll begin the day in the mid 50s with clouds.

We're tracking gusty winds, blowing in from the southwest between 15 and 20 mph with afternoon highs warming into the mid 70s.

Monday begins in the upper 50s before warming into the low 70s. Winds stay breezy, between 10 and 20 mph, gusting to near 25 at times.

Once again, clouds start the day but sunshine is expected by the afternoon.

We're tracking the dryline moving into our area ahead of our next  cold front. It will begin to move in Monday night, bringing slight rain chances.

Rain chances increase Tuesday morning as the dryline gets pushed east ahead of the cold front. We'll begin the day in the mid 50s before warming into the mid 70s ahead of the front.

Along with the rain chances, look for a very breezy day Tuesday. West winds are expected between 20 and 25 mph.

The cold front is expected to move through overnight on Tuesday, making for a chilly start to Wednesday.

Temperatures will cool into the mid 30s under clearing skies.

Look for more sunshine Wednesday with highs only warming into the mid 50s.

High pressure builds in, keeping sunny skies and dry weather in the forecast through the weekend.

Mornings will be chilly, with temps in the mid to upper 30s through Saturday. We'll see a warming trend with afternoon highs on Thursday in the low 60s. By Saturday afternoon, we'll warm into the mid 60s.
