Clouds Roll In Tonight

Late this afternoon, clouds began to thicken up as a cool front made its way toward Southeast Texas.  Above is what the skies over the Woodlands Mall looked like late this afternoon.  There could even be a few spotty showers this evening, but by morning, any sign of that front will be long gone.  In its place, a return of the sunny skies we saw Thursday along with a cooler drier feel.  High pressure settling in over the region delivers a chilly night Saturday and a cool start to Sunday.  The second half of the weekend should be slightly warmer before a series of cold fronts moves through Monday and again on Thursday of next week.  Each frontal passage brings the promise of showers and possibly thunderstorms.  However, fans and visitors to Houston this weekend for the 2013 NBA All-Star festivities won't need to worry much about rain, just a cool feel.  Look for plenty of stylish winter wear.

TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy with spotty, brief passing showers possible.  Temperatures hold in the low 50s early on, but quickly drop into the upper 30s once the clouds move out before sunrise.  Winds becoming northerly 10-15 mph.

SATURDAY: Sunny, breezy and cool; a day for a jacket or coat.  Highs may not get to 60°.  Steady northwest winds 15-20 mph.  Cool in the evening under clear skies, temperatures slip into the mid 40s.

SUNDAY: Cold start with some neighborhoods north of Houston waking up to the low 30s. upper 30s in Houston and mid 40s along the coast.  Sunny morning skies become partly cloudy by afternoon.  Highs in the mid 60s.  Southerly winds 5-10 mph.  Temperatures will be in the mild low 60s with a steady breeze as fans head to Toyota Center to see the NBA's best shine.
