We'll have less sunshine and higher humidity as we head through the weekend. High clouds are moving in from the west with the upper level winds while surface winds are coming around to the east-southeast and will cause the humidity to rise, leading to low clouds and only partial afternoon sunshine. Beaches will stay cool this weekend for the start of Spring Break, in the 60s due to clouds and an easterly breeze. The onshore flow will continue next week, keeping low clouds at the coast with partial afternoon clearing. As high pressure aloft strengthens over south Texas, temperatures will climb into the low to upper 80s inland next week while beaches will stay in the low 70s due to the mild breeze off the water. Also, except for a spot shower chance Monday, next week looks dry.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 60s at the beaches to the lower 70s inland and east-southeast winds at 12-20 mph.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy, breezy and mild with highs in the upper 60s at the beaches to the mid to upper 70s inland and southeast winds at 15-25 mph.

Monday: Mostly cloudy with a spot shower chance and highs near 70 at the beaches to the upper 70s inland and southeast winds at 12-22 mph.

Tuesday: Partly to mostly cloudy and warmer with highs in the low 70s at the beaches to the lower 80s inland.

Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the low 70s at the beaches to the lower 80s in Corpus Christi and mid to upper 80s well inland.
