ABILENE, Texas -

The work week begins breezy and warm before a big temperature drop arrives Tuesday.

Overnight Sunday there will still be an elevated fire danger so be sure to avoid anything that could start one. Fires will spread quickly and be hard to extinguish.

Winds will finally settle down to 10 to 20 mph by Monday morning. Lows will cool to the mid 50s.

Monday, look for another windy afternoon. West winds will blow in at 15 to 25 mph, gusting higher at times. Highs will warm to the mid 80s.

While no Red Flag Warnings are in effect at the moment, it's still a good idea to avoid anything that could spark fires.

Overnight Monday a cold front will sweep in, cooling us down into the upper 40s.

We'll stay breezy Tuesday with a north wind at 15 to 25 mph. Highs will be quite a bit cooler, in the mid 70s.

Temperatures will run below average for several days after that.

Overnight Tuesday we're tracking lows in the mid 40s with highs warming to the low 70s during the afternoon.

Thursday, look for a slight chance for showers as a disturbance sweeps in from the northwest. Morning temps will start in the low 40s before warming to near 70 by the afternoon.

Friday will be dry with highs in the mid 70s.

Into the weekend we're tracking warmer weather and sunshine. Highs will be back into the mid to upper 80s.
