ABILENE, Texas -

Showers and storms will be possible through the early morning hours Sunday. After the initial band of morning storms moves east, lingering showers will remain.

Highs Sunday will be a few degrees cooler than day's past, thanks to a bit more cloud cover. Afternoon temps will warm to around 90 degrees.

Showers come to an end overnight Monday and stay out of the forecast through the start of the weekend.
