Synopsis: Favorable and unseasonably warm weather will greet those attending this year's festival both today and Saturday. Rain chances will increase on Sunday as a storm system organizes in the central U.S. and a cold front moves into Southeast Texas, passing through the local area late Sunday evening. Onshore winds will be rather brisk throughout the weekend before shifting to strong northerly winds late Sunday evening and early Monday morning following the frontal passage.
