EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -
We’ve been sitting along the outer boundary of a ridge of high pressure to our east all week, allowing showers to build in from the south each afternoon. For today, that area of high pressure will build back over East Texas, bringing partly to mostly sunny skies, and decreasing our chance for rain through the weekend.
For today, expect highs in the low 90s, partly to mostly sunny skies, and winds from the south around 5 mph. Skies will stay partly cloudy overnight, with lows once again in the low 70s.
Those partly sunny skies will stick around all weekend as the ridge of high pressure parks itself over our area. It will be a great weekend for any of your outdoor plans! Summer officially starts on Saturday, and it will feel like it. Highs will stay in the low 90s, so if you’re at the lake, at the pool, or just hanging out in your back yard, don’t forget to drink plenty of water and wear your sunscreen this weekend.
Partly sunny skies and highs in the low 90s will continue through the beginning of the work week. The area of high pressure will begin to exit the region by mid-week, allowing a disturbance to build in by Thursday. The chance for scattered showers and storms will return by Wednesday, continuing through the end of the work week.
