ABILENE, Texas -

After a couple of very cold days, look for a relatively mild Thursday afternoon with high temperatures back in the middle 50s.

This warmup will be short lived as another cold front is forecast to move in early Friday.  This will bring back below normal temperatures to our region into Sunday.  Normal lows are around freezing and normal highs are in the middle 50s.

Low temperatures Friday morning should be in the middle to upper 20s and highs Friday should only climb into the lower 40s.

Look for a chilly start Saturday with lows near 20.  Afternoon temperatures Saturday should recover to the upper 40s.

Lots of high clouds will be moving through our region again Thursday into Friday.  Fair skies are expected to return for Friday afternoon and continue through Saturday afternoon. 

Clouds should be increasing again Sunday and we could see some light showers late Sunday night or Monday morning as yet another cold front moves in.

A trailing upper level disturbance could bring some light showers to our region for Monday night and Tuesday morning.
