Good Tuesday morning East Texas. HOT! That is the quick and easy way to explain today's weather. A ridge of high pressure in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere will build over the Southern Plains allow for the heat to build. For this afternoon we will see partly cloudy skies with highs in the middle 90s. Winds will be out of the southwest between 10 and 15 miles per hour. Heat index values will approach 100 degrees this afternoon.
