Tuesday's Weather: Chance of thunderstorms with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - We are watching a few showers and thunderstorms this morning, but they are very spotty.

Some brief heavy downpours, lots of lightning, and brief gusty winds will be possible with these storms that are expected to persist through the morning hours.

This afternoon the chance for a few more showers/storms is in the forecast, especially from I-20 and points to the south. Highs today will top out in the upper 80s and lower 90s.

A few showers may linger in our southern counties this evening. Otherwise partly cloudy skies are expected. Lows will drop into the lower to middle 70s once again.

The slim chance for a few more spotty showers and thunderstorms is in the forecast for your Wednesday, but it is not expected to be nearly as widespread as what we will see today.

Highs on Wednesday will top out in the lower 90s.
