South winds will be gusty with sustained speeds between 10 and 15 mph becoming north northwest in the afternoon.

Tonight will also be cloudy, but there will be a gradual clearing, and that will help the low fall to around 39 degrees. Chilly winds will come from the north at 5 to 10 mph.

Weekend showers.jpg

Shower and storms return this weekend as a fast-moving storm system arrives Saturday and moves across the region through Sunday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop and spread across North and Central Texas during the day Saturday, a few strong storms with small hail and frequent lightning will be possible mainly in Central and East Texas. On Sunday showers and storms will begin increasing during the morning hours. The severe weather threat on Sunday is conditional (may not occur at all), but if instability can increase by afternoon afternoon, then a few strong to severe storms may occur east of the I-35 corridor. Large hail and damaging winds would be the main concerns with these stronger storms. A weak cold front arrives Sunday night with drier and cooler conditions.
