Though it has been hot, it has also been a pretty day around East Texas. Satellite imagery has not picked up a lot of cloud cover today, except for those areas who had pop-up showers to develop. Very few lucky cities had convection to develop this afternoon. Most of East Texas stayed sunny and hot! This evening, we will remain mostly clear. Overnight lows will dive into the mid to upper 70s. A little extra cloud cover is added to the forecast for Sunday. Expect partly cloudy skies tomorrow, but also expect the same amount of heat. Highs will again be in the mid 90s.
The very anticipated solar eclipse will take place Monday. The eclipse will begin at 11:43 a.m., peaking at 1:14 in the afternoon, and will conclude at 2:43 p.m. There will be a few clouds in the sky, and there is a tiny chance for a pop-up shower, but most of the area will be mostly sunny.
The first half of the week will be hot and dry, but a cold front will try to switch things up later in the week. Rain chances increase as we head towards the end of the work week and afternoon highs drop into the low 90s.
