The weekend is here, but so is a weather change. Some isolated showers will be hanging around the Coastal Bend for much of the weekend, but it won’t totally mess up your plans.

Friday’s forecast

We won’t see any big surprises on Friday—a high in the mid-90s and mostly sunny skies. This will be almost completely average for this time of year. However, enjoy it while it’s here because you may see some changes by Saturday.

Saturday and Sunday

Moisture levels will start to rise by Saturday, which is expected to lead to some isolated showers in the Coastal Bend. The showers are likely to develop along the coast before moving inland throughout the day. Highs will still be in the 90s, with plenty of sunshine aside from the occasional shower. If you have outdoor plans or are heading to the beach, go for it. But, you may have to take a quick break for the passing shower.

We’ll also see the breeze pick up over the weekend. This will keep the bays and waterways pretty choppy.

Starting next week

As we start next week, we don’t totally lose the chance of rain, but it will go down. Some stray showers, mainly along the coast, are possible on Monday and Tuesday, but the chance of seeing a shower will be best over the Gulf waters.

High temperatures will be near average—in the mid-90s—but the humidity will be back, making it feel much warmer.
