Good morning, East Texas!
Temperatures today are going to get hot, with highs reaching into the mid 90s and heat index values expected to be over 100 degrees. Skies today will be mostly sunny with a few puffy cumulus clouds coasting through the sky with breezy winds from the south at 10-15 miles per hour. As we head into this evening, clouds will increase slightly and our northernmost counties will have a chance of rain as an upper-level disturbance works its way from the north bringing with it a few thunderstorms early tomorrow morning.
After the rain late tonight/early tomorrow morning, our rain chances basically turn to zero. Our 7 day will be fairly repetitive, with highs in the mid 90s and a breezy southerly wind and mostly sunny skies.
The heat today can be dangerous if you're not prepared so make sure you drink PLENTY of water and take frequent breaks. If you're planning on going out on the boat this weekend, keep that life jacket on. The winds are going to be gusty and there is sure to be some chop on the water.
Other than the heat, it is going to be a beautiful day in East Texas so make sure you enjoy it safely! Have a great day.
