ABILENE, Texas -

Warmer air returned Friday and it should stay with us through Saturday.  However, another dry cold front is forecast to move in Sunday to cool temperatures back to near normal for late February.

Look for a mild start to the day Saturday with lows in the middle 40s.  But lots of sunshine and a breezy southwest wind at 15-20 mph should warm temperatures back to near 80 for the afternoon hours Saturday.

Mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures are expected for Saturday night with lows around 50 Sunday morning.

A cold front should move in after sunrise Sunday and bring mostly cloudy skies and milder temperatures.  Highs Sunday afternoon should be in the upper 60s.

Mostly cloudy skies should continue Sunday night and temperatures should drop into the lower 40s Monday morning.

Temperatures should warm to near 70 Monday afternoon under partly cloudy skies.

A stronger surge of cold air is forecast to move in late Monday night.  We have a chance of seeing light showers for Monday night and Tuesday.

Low temperatures Tuesday morning should fall into the 40s with afternoon temperatures in the 50s under mostly cloudy skies.

Freezing temperatures are likely again for Wednesday morning and again Thursday morning.

Wintry weather is not expected in our area through Thursday.
