SXSW, Spring Break to end in warm, humid weekend


The end of South By South West and Spring Break will be warm and humid, according to the National Weather Service.

Saturday will bring patchy fog before 9 a.m. that will make way into a partly sunny day with a high near 81, the service said. That night will be partly cloudy with a low around 62.

Similarly, Sunday will be mostly sunny with a high near 81 (Zilker Kite Festival hopefuls would have been in for a treat had it been the rain date). Sunday night will also be partly cloudy with a low around 61.

The warm weekend is perhaps a taste of what’s to come. Monday is the first official day of spring, as the vernal equinox will arrive at 5:28 a.m. that day.
