ABILENE, Texas -

Temperatures are expected to rise significantly on Tuesday after cooler air moved into the region on Monday.

Highs on Tuesday will be a good 10-15 degrees warmer than Monday with the help of south winds from 5-15 mph.

A disturbance in Mexico is allowing some cloud cover to stream into the region on Tuesday, but it is expected to be another dry day.

Mostly clear and cool on Tuesday night with lows in the mid 40s with south winds at 10-15 mph helping to keep temperatures milder.

Breezy southwest winds will help temperatures rise even more to the low 70s.

Temperatures should peak in the mid 70s on Thursday before a cold front moves through early Friday morning.
