ABILENE, Texas -

We'll see lows in the teens with single digit wind chills by Monday morning.

Wind Chill Advisories are in effect for much of the region as we get a glancing blow of Arctic air that's spilling into the U.S. Lows will cool into the teens.

If there is a chance you'll be stranded Sunday night, consider changing your plans. Wind chills near zero degrees will introduce the dangers of hypothermia and frostbite if you're outside for an extended period of time.

These advisories are in effect through 9 a.m. Monday morning so be sure to dress the youngsters in warm layers as they head back to school.

Monday, we're not seeing much of a warm up as highs climb into the low 30s under sunny skies.

Tuesday morning, we'll begin around 20 degrees but breezy winds from the south will help us warm in a hurry, up to 50 by the afternoon.

Wednesday morning we'll see more breezy winds with lows starting in the mid 30s. By the end of the day, look for highs around 60 with partly to mostly cloudy skies.

Another cold front sweeps in overnight but it won't be anywhere as cold as tonight's temps. Thursday morning temps begin near 30 with afternoon highs in the low 50s.

Mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers are possible Thursday night with lows cooling to around 33 degrees.

Friday, the rain chances continue ahead of an upper level low pressure system. We'll see mostly cloudy skies, as well, with highs in the mid 50s.

A cold front moves in Friday night taking our rain chances and clouds with it. We'll see a few lingering clouds Saturday morning with temps in the low 30s.

Highs Saturday will make it into the upper 40s.

Sunday, a bit warmer, with sunshine and highs near 60.
