The cold front that moved through south Texas Tuesday has stalled and will move back to the north Friday, shifting our winds to the southeast and increasing moisture. A few showers are expected to develop Friday mainly over the coastal waters with a slight chance along the coast. Widely scattered showers and storms are possible Saturday as the front moves through with showers becoming isolated Sunday. It will be breezy this weekend with southeast winds at 15-20 mph Saturday and 20-25 mph Sunday. Also, the higher humidity will keep our nights warmer, only dropping into the upper 70s to near 80 at the coast and mid 70s inland. Days will be typically hot, reaching the low to mid 90s with afternoon heat indices at 100-105 under partly cloudy skies.

Thursday Night: Mostly clear and mild with lows in the mid to upper 60s inland and upper 70s at the beaches with light east to northeast winds.

Friday: Partly cloudy with highs in the upper 80s at the beaches to mid 90s inland and heat indices up to 100 degrees. There is an isolated shower chance at the coast.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy with a slight shower chance and lows in the low 70s inland to near 80 at the beaches.

Weekend: Partly cloudy and breezy with highs in the upper 80s at the beaches to low to mid 90s inland and a slight shower or t-storm chance. Heat indices will reach 100-105.
