KTXS Forecast: Freezing until Saturday afternoon
ABILENE, Texas - The very cold arctic air moved back into our area Thursday morning. Temperatures have already fallen into the teens and 20s Thursday evening. Low temperatures Friday should be in the middle to upper teens. Wind chill values should be in the single digits.
We are tracking a band of snow to our north - mainly around the I-40 corridor. Most of the significant snowfall should stay north of our area for Thursday night. We could see snow in the Big Country during the day Friday. Less than one inch of snow is possible for areas north of I-20. The better chances for snow are found the farther north you go in the Big Country.
Cloudy skies will continue all day Friday with temperatures in the 20s and wind chills around 10. Skies should clear Friday night. Saturday morning should be the coldest morning for most areas with lows in the low to middle teens.
Sunny skies and light winds are forecast for Saturday. High temperatures should be in the upper 30s. Fair skies and freezing temperatures should be found Saturday night with lows in the middle 20s for most areas. Upper teens could be found again the Heartland Sunday morning.
Sunny skies and increasing south winds should help warm temperatures in the upper 40s Sunday. A south wind of 15-20 will make it feel colder. Fair skies should continue Sunday night with lows in the 30s Monday morning.
Look for mostly sunny skies Monday with afternoon readings back in the 60s. Generally dry and warm weather should hold into Friday.
