Hope you're enjoying the return of the sun today, because we're headed for some changes this weekend and next week. A cold front will emerge from the Rockies late Sunday and head for Southeast Texas. In advance of the front, southeast winds return and so do the clouds. Rain is more likely Sunday, but there could some Saturday as well. So, if you're headed to the big Mardi Gras parade Saturday night, bring the rain gear.
The front stalls along the coast meaning a dreary start to next week before a stronger push of cold air arrives, bringing a return of a more winter feel just before Valentine's Day.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy early, with increasing cloudiness after midnight. Temperatures falling to upper 40s and low 50s. Northeast winds becoming easterly 5-10 mph.
NORMAN NUMBER FOR SATURDAY: 7
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy for most of the day with occasional periods of rain. Increasing rain chances by evening. Temperatures start cool in the low 50s rising to the upper 60s by afternoon. Southeast winds 5-10 mph.
NORMAN NUMBER FOR SUNDAY: 6
SUNDAY: Low clouds and fog early, then a mostly cloudy day with scattered showers increasing in coverage by afternoon and evening. Morning temperatures in the low to 60s, climbing to the milder 70s by afternoon. Southerly winds 10-15 mph.
