ABILENE, Texas -

After a warm start to the week but changes are on the way for Wednesday.

We're tracking scattered showers moving through the Big Country Sunday afternoon. After sunset the activity will begin to dissipate leaving behind partly cloudy skies. Temps this evening will cool into the low 60s.

Monday, we're looking at mostly sunny skies with hot temps on the way. We'll see highs soar into the upper 80s and low 90s. Overnight we're back into the low 60s.

Tuesday highs will, once again, make it into the low 90s. We'll keep the sunny skies going before cooling into the mid 60s at night.

Changes take shape Wednesday afternoon thanks to our next cold front. We'll make it into the mid 80s before the front arrives but cool down afterwards. We're tracking a good chance for showers and storms beginning Wednesday afternoon, bleeding over into the Wednesday night and early Thursday.

Temperatures overnight will plummet into the mid 40s as the storms continue to roll through. Breezy north winds will stay with us at night and into Thursday. On Thursday, we'll be much cooler with highs only making it into the mid 60s.

As the winds back off and the skies clear, a cold one is in store for Thursday night. Temps will drop to a chilly 40 degrees.

By Friday we're into the upper 60s with clear skies ahead.

Next weekend looks nice with partly to mostly cloudy skies returning by Sunday. Highs stay in the low 70s with nighttime temps in the mid to upper 40s.
