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.

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!
