ABILENE, Texas -

Temperatures are back in the freezer Friday night with readings mainly in the upper 20s.  Water puddles from ice and snow that melted Friday afternoon are freezing Friday night.  Watch out for icy spots on roads.

Much warmer air and sunshine will be with us Saturday.  Look for afternoon temperatures in the 60s.

Fair skies are forecast for Saturday night with lows around 40.  Partly cloudy skies should be found Sunday with high temperatures in the middle 60s.

We are tracking very cold air that is forecast to blow in Sunday night.  Low temperatures Monday morning should be in the 20s.  High temperatures Monday should only be in the 30s.

Precipitation is expected in our region Monday night and Tuesday.  This would likely fall as freezing rain or sleet.  We could see travel problems again Monday night and Tuesday.
