ABILENE, Texas -

Warming temperatures are with us for Tuesday.  Look for afternoon readings back into the middle 80s. 

The dryline is expected to set up just west of our area Tuesday afternoon.  Thunderstorms are forecast to form on this feature and then move eastward into our western areas Tuesday evening.  Frequent lightning is expected with the added dangers and large hail and strong winds possible.

The dryline is expected to be in our western areas Wednesday and Thursday.  Look for afternoon and evening thunderstorms possible for most of our region both of these days.

In addition, we are tracking a strong cold front that should bring thunderstorms to much of our are Thursday night into Friday morning.  Also, cooler temperatures should be back with us Friday through Sunday with afternoon highs in the 70s.
