ABILENE, Texas -

We are expecting highs on Friday to be much cooler with about a 20 degree temperature drop from Thursday.

The cold front that moved through Thursday night has left the Big Country with breezy northeast winds from 10-20 mph Friday and highs near 50 degrees in Abilene.

Overnight temperatures will fall to the upper 20s with a mostly clear sky and light north winds.

It will be mostly sunny on Saturday with temperatures returning to near average at 60 degrees.

A strengthening pressure gradient will create windy conditions Sunday out of the southwest from 20-30 mph.

This will help warm temperatures to around 70 by Sunday afternoon.
