Temperatures will warm the next few days with an increasing onshore flow and more cloud cover. Daytime temperatures will warm as winds shift to the southeast Sunday and south Monday. President's Day looks warm and windy with temperatures reaching the lower 70s at the beaches to the mid 80s inland. The warmth lasts through the first half of the day Tuesday before a cold front moves through, sending much cooler air into south Texas by Tuesday night. A few showers are possible with the front but our better chance of rain comes Wednesday as an overrunning pattern develops. Southwesterly winds aloft will run over the top of the cool dome of air at the surface causing drizzle and occasional light rain as temperatures stay in the 50s next Wednesday and Thursday. It will be chilly and damp but rain amounts will be low.

Saturday: Partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 60s at the beaches to the low 70s inland and east-southeast winds up to 12 mph.

Sunday: Stray shower chance early then mostly cloudy and warmer with highs near 70 at the beaches to the upper 70s inland and east-southeast winds up to 12 mph.

Monday: Partly sunny, windy and warm with highs in the mid 70s beaches to the low to mid 80s inland and south-southeast winds up to 25 mph.

Tuesday: Partly sunny with temperatures reaching into the 70s before winds shift to the north with a chance of light showers late in the day.

Wednesday: Cloudy and much cooler with highs in the mid to upper 50s and occasional light rain and drizzle.

Thursday: Cloudy and cool with highs in the low to mid 50s and a chance of light rain and drizzle.

Friday: Partly cloudy and cool with highs in the upper 50 to low 60s.
