ABILENE, Texas -

A cold front is moving into the Big Country Thursday night.  It should bring cooler temperatures to our region for Friday.  Look for highs in the 60s for the Big Country and in the 70s for the Concho Valley and Heartland for Friday.

This cool air should retreat back to the north Friday night.  Look for lows around 50 Saturday morning.

Dry, mild air will blow in Saturday morning from the west.  We could see a morning shower in our eastern areas Saturday.  Fair skies and strong west winds should warm temperatures to around 80 across our region for Saturday afternoon.

Very cold air that has been lingering over the northern U.S. should race in Saturday night.  Look for lows in the 30s Sunday morning with strong north winds.

Fair skies and very cool temperatures are forecast for Sunday through Tuesday.  Look for highs in the 50s Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.  Freezing temperatures are likely for Monday and Tuesday mornings.
