EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -
Good morning, East Texas. After a long stretch of below normal temperatures, looks like things will begin to trend back in the normal direction as we progress through the rest of the week.
Your Monday calls for a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will continue to be out of the north and east which will help to keep temps slightly below normal for a few more days. Look for afternoon highs to warm only into the upper 80s to lower 90s across the area. Due to the proximity of an upper low pressure along the Gulf Coast, we will have to keep a slight chance (20%) of a few isolated storms to develop during the afternoon hours. This mainly looks to occur in portions of Deep East Texas, although can't rule out a stray shower or storm across the I-20 corridor as well. Your Tuesday will feature more of the same. A mix of sun and clouds with a slight chance of an isolated storm. look for highs to return into the lower 90s. Wednesday will feature one last day of an isolated shower, otherwise turning hot and humid with highs warming into the low to mid 90s. The late-week forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and hot conditions. Look for afternoon high temps to warm into the mid 90s across the area thanks to a southerly wind. A weak front will once again try and back door itself into the region by next weekend. The jury is still out on how successful this front will be, but have thrown in a slight chance for an isolated storm for the weekend, along with temps hovering in the mid 90s. Some cooler air could once again return to the area by next week, but as of now, nothing concrete showing up in the guidance. Copyright 2014 KLTV. All rights reserved.
