ABILENE, Texas -

A warming trend will last through Tuesday but it won't last long.

Tonight, a disturbance will track across south Texas. Along this disturbance we're tracking the chance for showers and thunderstorms to develop. The brunt of the activity looks to stay to our south but some might clip the Concho Valley and Heartland so we'll keep slight rain chances going tonight.

Tomorrow kicks off our next warming trend. We'll start the day in the mild mid 50s before warming to the mid 80s. Look for another disturbance that'll bring scattered shower chances back to the forecast. We'll dry out into the nighttime hours with lows cooling into the low 60s.

Monday, plenty of sunshine with a hot afternoon on tap. Highs will top out around 90. Overnight, look for partly cloudy skies with temps cooling to around 60. We'll stay warmer than normal for late April with Tuesday highs around 90.

Changes are on the way for Wednesday. We'll see a strong cold front in the afternoon bringing a 30% chance for showers and storms. Ahead of the front, highs top out in the low 80s. The shower chances linger into the early morning hours Thursday with temps in the mid 40s.

Thursday afternoon, we're clearing out with temps only making it into the upper 60s. We'll warm to around 70 by Friday afternoon but afternoon highs will stay below average into the weekend with Saturday highs around 74.
