Wednesday's Weather: Hot and humid. Highs in the mid 90s

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - The heat and humidity has arrived across East Texas. Look for this new trend to continue through the rest of the week.

Your Wednesday will feature more of the same. Hot and humid conditions with a slight chance for an isolated storm. Slightly better storm chances this evening and tonight. Highs warming into the mid 90s.

A weak front will approach the area from the north on Thursday. Not expecting much in the way of cooler temps across the area, but the front could add to enough lift to create a few pop up showers and storms by Thursday across some parts of East Texas. Look for highs to be slightly cooler with mid 90s likely across the region.

As we wrap up the work week, and enter into the upcoming weekend, look for the true Dog Days of Summer to build back into the region. Look for highs in the upper 90s to near 100 areawide with mostly sunny skies, due to the heat and humidity, heat index values will be approaching the dangerous 105 degree mark. Rain chances may increase a bit as we move into the following work week, along with some cooler weather. Until then, look for the true Dog Days of Summer here in East Texas.
