Rain showers overnight in Austin, then gorgeous weather

The National Weather Service is forecasting a 50 percent chance of rain tonight in Austin, with a chance of thunderstorms and a low around 55 degrees. But then Austin will probably do what it usually does for the SXSW visitors — turn gorgeous. Saturday will have a slight chance of showers and should be mostly sunny, with a high around 75. Sunday: sunny skies and a forecast high around 84 degrees.

Hopefully the life-size TIE fighter will stick around for the lovely weekend weather.
