ABILENE, Texas -

More above normal temperatures and rain chances are in store for Monday.

Triple digits temperatures are being felt all across the Big Country this afternoon but we'll cool into the upper 60s by Monday morning. Look for mostly clear skies throughout the night.

Monday, we'll see mostly clear skies throughout the day but the dryline will move into the area once again. As it does, there is a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly over the eastern Big Country. Any showers that do develop will fizzle out and move east after sunset. Highs will warm into the mid to upper 90s Monday afternoon.

Tuesday starts out in the upper 60s but a cold front will sweep through during the morning hours. Highs will only warm into the upper 80s and low 90s behind the front and we could see showers and storms as it drops through the Big Country.

Wednesday morning starts out around 60 degrees before warming into the upper 80s and low 90s. Dry weather is on tap through Wednesday and Thursday as high pressure builds in. We'll see highs staying in the low 90s for Thursday with nighttime temperatures in the mid to upper 60s.

By Friday morning, we'll track a disturbance into the region that will bring rain chances back. Showers will develop into the Panhandle and move southeast into our region. Things will quiet down through the day but mostly cloudy skies will stay with us. Look for highs in the upper 80s and low 90s by the afternoon.

Another round of showers is on tap through Friday night into Saturday morning but we should clear out during the day Saturday. After morning temps in the upper 60s, we'll warm into the low 90s. Similar weather will stick around for next Sunday as highs warm into the low 90s with partly cloudy skies.
