High clouds are moving into south Texas from the southwest ahead of a developing storm system in southern California. These will keep our skies mostly cloudy through Saturday but will finally clear early Sunday behind a cold front. Ahead of this front, winds will shift to the south Saturday bringing temperatures up into the upper 70s with 15-25 mph winds. A few showers are possible Saturday evening and overnight as the front moves through but rainfall amounts are expected to be low, under a tenth inch. Cool northerly winds will gradually clear our sky Sunday and it won't be as warm with highs in the 60s. Another storm system developing in the Southwest will increase our clouds again early next week with an increasing chance of showers late Tuesday into Wednesday as another cold front moves through early Thursday.

Thursday night: Mostly cloudy with lows in the mid 50s inland to low 60s coast.

Friday: Mostly cloudy and mild with highs near 70 at the beaches to the mid 70s inland and east winds at 8-18 mph.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy, windy and warmer with highs in the mid to upper 70s and south winds at 15-25 mph.

Saturday night: Chance of light showers with winds shifting to the north by morning and lows in the 50s.
