Warmer weather returns for the weekend, only to be replaced by much colder air for the beginning of the work week, and a chance for freezing rain, sleet and snow Monday night and Tuesday. Temperatures Saturday are forecast to start in the upper 20's in the morning but near 62 in the afternoon. Saturday night the upper 30's, Sunday the middle 60's. However, Sunday's high temperature could easily be much colder than 65. A front is forecast to ease into the northern cities of the Big Country (Aspermont, Haskell, Throckmorton) on Sunday. Temperatures could easily be much cooler than the projected 65 in those areas. And, areas south of Abilene (Brownwood, Coleman, Ballinger) could be much warmer than 65, in the low 70's on Sunday, prior to the front moving through. By early Monday morning, expect temperatures to be around 25 degrees. Highs of 35 Monday may be wishful thinking. As an upper level disturbance moves over the area Monday night and Tuesday, it is expected to cause precipitation which will most likely fall as freezing rain and sleet with light snow also possible. If this scenario plays out as forecast, we could be dealing with icy roads on Tuesday. By next Wednesday, highs begin warming into the upper 50's with middle 60's to end next week.
