Wednesday's Weather: Mix of sun and clouds. Very warm, muggy conditions. Highs in upper 80s


Happy Hump Day, East Texas! We're tracking a mixture of sun & clouds as we move through our Wednesday. Look for more clouds in the morning, with spots of sunshine returning by later this afternoon. Very warm & muggy conditions will persist with highs climbing into the upper 80s to near 90. Heat index values will be in the mid-90s. We will run a slight risk for a few isolated pop-up showers and storms this afternoon across the area, but most locations will remain mainly dry. An isolated storm will be possible during the evening hours, as more clouds stream in from the west. 

Look for better rain and storm chances to increase during the day Thursday as an upper level disturbance moves in from the south. Scattered showers & storms will increase Thursday afternoon and evening. Highs climb into the lower 80s. 

Friday will feature a very good shot at widespread showers & storms. Some of these storms could be strong to severe and will have the potential to produce heavy rain, damaging winds, and large hail. For this reason, Thursday & Friday have been declared "First Alert Weather Days." This just means disruptive weather could impact any plans you have outside. Stay weather aware and we will keep you updated on the latest information. 

The good news is that any widespread rain & storm chances will come to an end by the time we move towards the weekend. Partly cloudy skies with just isolated showers possible Saturday & Sunday but expect warm & humid conditions with highs in the mid 80s. 

Right now, Memorial Day is looking very warm & humid with highs in the upper 80s. Just a few isolated showers possible but I would not cancel any outdoor plans, as this is a typical summer-time outlook.
