KTXS Forecast: Strong storms expected across the Big Country
ABILENE, Texas - Sunday night rain chances will remain around 80-90 percent across the region as a low pressure system slowly pushes through. As it does thunderstorms, even severe thunderstorms are likely. The Storm Prediction Center still has most of the Big Country in a slight risk box, which means heavy rain, strong winds and hail are likely. The line of storms will move through the region starting in the early afternoon through midnight. Lows Sunday night are expected to cool to the upper 30s/ low 40s with cloudy skies and southeast winds at 5-10 mph.

Tuesday's highs will cool slightly as north winds continue to filter into the region. Highs will be around normal in the mid-50s with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and a 10 percent chance of scattered showers for areas south of the I-20 line. Tuesday night lows will be in the upper 30s.
