ABILENE, Texas -

Strong south and southwest winds will be with us Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  The winds will keep a steady flow of warmer air moving through our region.

Look for low temperatures Wednesday morning in the lower 40s, but afternoon temperatures should be back into the lower 70s.

Low temperatures Thursday morning should be in the lower 50s with afternoon readings around 70.

Look for highs in the lower 70s again Friday but near 80 Saturday and Easter Sunday.  We are still tracking a cold front that looks to move in Monday.  This should return chilly air to our region for Tuesday.

The dryline could send a few late day thunderstorms into our western regions Thursday.   It appears that the better chances for thunderstorms Friday will be for our northern areas Friday night.

We will keep a chance of mainly late day and evening thunderstorms in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday.  The best chance of rain for our region looks to be on Monday.
