Thursday's Weather: Hot and humid. Highs near 100 with heat Advisories until 7 p.m.

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

A Burn Ban is in effect for Panola, Cherokee, Marion, Harrison, Houston, Tyler, Sabine and Anderson Counties until further notice.

Heat Advisories have already been issued for East Texas for our Thursday, as the heat wave continues.

Highs will reach the upper 90s to low 100s today, but when you factor in the humidity, it will feel even hotter than that. With heat index values climbing between 100-110 , Heat Advisories will be in effect until at least 7 p.m.

Franklin, Titus, Camp, Morris, Cass, Wood, Upshur, Marion, Smith, Gregg, Harrison, Cherokee, Rusk, Panola and Angelina will be under Heat Advisories from 1 to 7 p.m. today. Heat Advisories, going into affect at 1 p.m. today, have already been extended until 7 p.m. Sunday for Van Zandt, Henderson, Anderson, Delta, Hopkins, Kaufman and Rains Counties.

An upper level ridge of high pressure will continue to build over the region through the remainder of the week. As that ridge moves in from the west, centering over East Texas this weekend, our temperatures will continue to climb. Air sinking under that ridge will keep skies clear through the end of the week.

We'll be looking at the hottest temperatures so far this year, with highs climbing between 100 to 105 Thursday through the start of next week. The hottest day of the year, so far, is expected to be on Monday, with highs around 105. When you factor in the humidity, it will feel even hotter than that.

By the middle of next week a "cool front" will move into the region. This will bring slightly cooler conditions, with highs falling into the upper 90s.

Have a great day!

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
