ABILENE, Texas -

We have been tracking strong south winds the past few days which have helped to keep us very warm for this time of the year.  A similar situation is forecast for Friday.

A strong cold front is still expected to blow in early Saturday morning with strong north winds at 20-30 mph.  This will bring noticeably cooler air to our region for the weekend and early next week.

Scattered showers and isolated thundershowers will be possible as wind shift moves through our area between midnight and sunrise Saturday.

A trailing upper level disturbance will keep us with mostly cloudy skies Saturday with a lingering chance of light showers.

Skies are expected to clear from north to south Saturday night.  Look for mostly sunny skies Sunday.

Temperatures will be very warm for one more day Friday with highs in the lower 90s.  It should be warm for Friday night football games.   The cooler air is expected to arrive after the games.

Low temperatures Saturday morning should be near 50.  Afternoon temperatures Saturday should not get out of the 60s.

A very cool start to Sunday is forecast with lows in the middle to upper 40s.  High temperatures Sunday should warm into the middle 70s. 

Another cool start to the day Monday with lows in the 40s.  High temperatures Monday should be back up around 80.

A slow warming trend should continue for the rest of the work week.
