Wednesday Forecast: Mostly sunny skies. Warm & humid! Highs in the lower 90s. Heat Index near 100

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

Happy Wednesday, East Texas! We're looking at a mostly sunny day across the area. Typical summertime  heat is expected. Look for high temps to warm into the low to mid-90s. The heat indices will warm to near 100. We could see a 10% chance for a spotty shower across the far south this afternoon. 

Rain chances do increase slightly for your Thursday afternoon. Look for a 30% chance for afternoon pop up storms to develop, especially across our eastern counties. Otherwise look for partly cloudy skies with highs warming near 90. Shower & storm chances ramp up to a 50% chance on your Friday afternoon, as  a cold front moves in from the northwest. Don't look for much in the way of cooler air, but moisture will aid in rain development. We should mainly dry out for the upcoming weekend, with highs near 90. 

We will have to keep a close eye on the tropics this weekend into next week, as models are showing a possible tropical system that could impact the NW Gulf States by mid to late next week. Stay Tuned for more on that in the coming days!
