                       THE SHADE IF POSSIBLE.

                       ALONG AREA BEACHES. A WEAK DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE
                       WESTWARD ACROSS THE GULF, BRINGING ISOLATED
                       SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE LOWER TEXAS COAST
                       FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. OTHERWISE, WARM AND MOSTLY
                       SUNNY SKIES CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.
