Good evening, East Texas!
As we head into our evening/overnight hours, the remnants of a strong upper-level disturbance will push off to the east finally leaving our northern counties with quieter conditions tonight. Cloud cover should remain mostly intact overnight and with the breezy southerly winds, expect a muggy and humid start tomorrow morning with lows in the mid to upper 70s.
As we head into tomorrow afternoon there will be a slight chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms throughout most of our area. Currently, the models are relying on an outflow boundary from an upper-level disturbance currently located near the Rockies to trigger these showers and storms across East Texas. If everything goes according to plan, best chances for rain will sit between 12 pm to 6 pm tomorrow, otherwise, it will be pretty difficult for any storms to fire off over our area tomorrow afternoon other than a few possible scattered light showers. Rain or not, tomorrow will be a hot day and thanks to the humidity, heat indices will reach into the mid 100-106 degree range so be very careful if you have any outdoor plans during the heat of the day. Cloud cover should break apart tomorrow evening, giving us partly to mostly clear skies by bedtime.
After tomorrow, chances for rain are basically nonexistent for the remaining week. A stable summer pattern will set in with highs in the mid 90s with partly to mostly clear skies, and heat index values over 100 degrees so make sure you stay hydrated and in the shade as much as possible.
Have a great night.
