We finally saw sunshine Friday afternoon but the clouds will return Friday night as an upper level low which is currently in the southwestern states moves east over Texas Saturday. Moisture will increase from the south ahead of the system and showers will develop in the afternoon and continue overnight, tapering off after midnight.

Jackets and umbrellas are a good idea for those heading outdoors Saturday as temperatures will stay in the 50s in the afternoon after a chilly morning, in the 40s. North winds will increase late in the day up to 18 mph with breeziest winds at the coast.

Rainfall amounts will stay low with the hit and miss showers Saturday with some areas only getting a trace of rain while others could see up to a half inch. Higher totals are expected at the coast with lighter amounts inland.

As clouds break up Saturday night in our western counties, temperatures will fall to near 40 while at the coast the clouds will stick around and lows will stay in the upper 40s.

The clouds will decrease Sunday with afternoon sunshine and warmer temperatures, reaching the low to mid 60s with a northwest breeze.

High pressure aloft will build next week, providing us with sunshine and warmer days, reaching the upper 60s Monday and into the mid 70s Wednesday and Thursday.

Our next cold front moves in next Friday with isolated showers followed by cooler air.
