Happy Saturday, East Texas!
The weekend is here! Today will be another hot summer day across East Texas. An abundance of sunshine graces our skies this morning. Sunny skies will give way to a quick increase in temperatures. Many folks will have temperatures near 90 degrees by noon. Afternoon highs will make it into the mid 90s. The heat doesn't stop there. Heat index values, or the "feel-like temperature," will be in the triple digits. A few counties are under a heat advisory today until 7 PM. Those counties include Nacogdoches, Panola, Sabine, San Augustine, and Shelby counties.
There will be plenty of sunshine to go around today, but there is a small chance for a pop-up shower this afternoon. They will be spotty in nature, and will not last long. The convection that develops today will diminish as the day moves towards the evening and night time hours. Overnight lows will fall into the mid to upper 70s under quiet skies.
Have a great day!
