Happy Friday, East Texas!
It's been hot and humid all week and heat advisories continue for many East Texas counties into the weekend. Expect evening temperatures to be in the 80s with fair skies and light southerly winds. Overnight, those temperatures will drop off into the mid to upper 70s.
Fair skies to start Saturday morning, with a few clouds by afternoon. High temperatures will reach the mid 90s with heat index values in the low triple digits by afternoon. There's a very slight chance for a few isolated afternoon showers on Saturday, but better chances for rain return to the forecast Sunday.
Expect mostly sunny skies early Sunday, but becoming partly cloudy by afternoon. Chances for rain will increase through the day Sunday. Not everyone will see the rain but a few scattered showers and thundershowers are expected to develop by afternoon. Chances for rain will continue into Monday, especially early in the day.
These rain chances will keep temperatures a tiny bit cooler in the lower 90s, but those temperatures will be rising during the week and by the end of next week, high temperatures will once again reach the mid to upper 90s with triple digit heat index values.
