Houston is set to welcome hundreds of thousands of fans to the 2013 NBA All-Star festivities, which kick off tomorrow. There's plenty for hoops fans of all ages at the FanFest at the George R Brown, but the hottest tickets will be for the actual events in Toyota Center. Fortunately, everything is indoors and the weather should be quite nice, albeit a little cool. A fast-moving cold front arrives Friday, briefly returning clouds to the skies, but as high pressure builds in Saturday, cool sunshine returns. Clouds arrive again late Sunday just before the actual game tip-off, but rain should hold off until Monday.
TONIGHT: Clear and cool, becoming chilly by morning with lows in the upper 30s north of town, low 40s in town and upper 40s along the coast. Winds southeast 5-10 mph.

FRIDAY: Mostly sunny early, followed by increasing clouds during the afternoon, increased wind and a much drier feel. Overnight, there may be brief periods of spotty light rain. Highs in the low 60s. North winds 10-15 mph.
NORMAN NUMBER FOR SATURDAY: 8
SATURDAY: Sunny, breezy and cool. Morning temperatures start in the mid to upper 30s in town, with some spots north of the city seeing a light freeze. A day for a jacket or coat with steady northwest winds 15-20 mph. Temperatures may not get to 60°.
