Chelsea Humphrey: Tracking a wet start to the work week

ABILENE, Texas - A cold front looks to bring more rain to the Big Country Monday morning.

Overnight Sunday, showers and storms will likely develop to our west in the Panhandle before moving east into the Big Country.

Lows will cool into the upper 60s.

Storm dangers with any storms will include heavy rain and strong winds. Rain that moves in will be falling on saturated ground so most of our counties along and north of I-20 are under a Flash Flood Watch through Monday afternoon.

Monday we'll see a cold front move in, bringing an additional chance for showers and thunderstorms. The best chance for rain will be during the morning hours.

Monday afternoon we're tracking highs in the mid 80s.

There will be a slight chance for lingering showers overnight Monday and into Tuesday morning.

Otherwise look for a pleasant start to the day with temps around 60 degrees. Afternoon highs will warm to the upper 80s.

Wednesday, the mercury climbs back into the low 90s under partly cloudy skies.

There's a slight chance for an overnight t'storm moving in from the west. Any activity will dissipate before sunrise Thursday.

Thursday starts in the mid 60s before warming to the mid 90s. We'll see moist air filtering in from the Gulf which will make it feel pretty muggy.

We're tracking a weak cold front that will stall across the area Friday morning. We'll start the day around 70 degrees with highs warming to 90.

We're back up to the mid 90s Saturday with mostly sunny skies and just a slight chance for an afternoon t'storm along the dryline.

Sunday, we'll see another weak front stall across our northern counties. It won't make it as far south as Abilene so we'll still keep highs for most of us in the mid 90s.

Behind the front should be a few degrees cooler.
