EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

Brace yourself... triple digits are back in the forecast today.

Highs will reach the upper 90s to low 100s this afternoon with plenty of sunshine. When you factor in the humidity, it will feel more like 105-110 degrees outside.

Due to those dangerous heat indices, Heat Advisories have been issued for Franklin, Titus, Camp, Morris, Cass, Wood, Upshur, Marion, Smith, Gregg, Harrison, Cherokee, Rusk, Panola, Nacogdoches, Shelby, Angelina and San Augustine Counties from 12-7 p.m. Wednesday.

That ridge in the jet stream that has been bringing the sunny and hot weather into East Texas will be here through the end of the week. Lows will be in the upper 80s to low 80s each morning with highs in the upper 90s to low 100s each afternoon.

By the weekend, that ridge will start to break down, allowing a few clouds and even a few showers to move into our area.

Isolated showers will be possible each afternoon, Friday through the start of the next work week. Overall the chance for rain is low, but with moderate drought over our northeastern counties, any rain could help. Lows will be in the upper 70s with highs in the upper 90s.

Tropical Storm Earl continues to make it's way closer to the coast of Belize today. The National Hurricane Center says that it could strengthen before it makes landfall this evening, possibly becoming a category 1 hurricane. Hurricane warnings have been issued along the coast of Belize, with high winds and heavy rain expected.

That ridge that has kept our skies clear this week will block Earl from impacting us. If you're heading to the Yucatan Peninsula for vacation, you could run into some problems in the next few days.
