Break Out The Umbrellas!

After several cool, dry days, we're in for a change.  This depiction from a computer model shows a disturbance coming out of the Hill Country headed across the state Friday.  At the same time, the southeast winds that returned today will draw in Gulf moisture.  The combination of factors means a good chance you'll get wet, especially in the afternoon.

Once that batch of rain moves out, a cool front will be dragged across Texas on Saturday.  As our winds switch to the southwest, it will get warmer and more humid.  That could lead to some spotty showers and mainly cloudy conditions:

The front will stall and hang up along the coast.  As a series of disturbances rides along the front, passing rain showers will drift through the area.  That could lead to a soggy Sunday, especially for tailgaters and fans headed to the big Texans game vs. the Colts:

The front will eventually move to our east but don't expect a big cool down like we've seen these past few days.
TONIGHT: Fair skies early, then increasing clouds after midnight.  Not quite as chilly as the past few evenings.  Lows in the mid 40s in Houston, upper 30s for northern 'burbs, mid to upper 50s along the coast.
FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy skies with scattered passing showers drifting from west to east by afternoon. Milder with highs in the upper 60s. Southeast winds 10-15 mph.
SATURDAY: Variably cloudy with occasional periods of light rain. Warmer and more humid with highs in the low 70s.  Southerly winds 10-15 mph.
