A strong line of thunderstorms moved through the area last night and early this morning and are now well to the east of the area. Today we will see partly cloudy skies across East Texas with a few more clouds and maybe an isolated shower confined to the I-30 corridor. Highs today will reach the lower 60s with breezy conditions. Northwest wind could gust as high as 30 mph at time today. Because of that a lake wind advisory is in effect for our central and eastern counties. Cool temperatures tonight as we drop into the upper 30 s to near 40 degrees in most areas. Lots of sunshine and beautiful weather is on tap for us tomorrow as most areas reach 70 degrees.
Another storm system will move to our north Saturday and bring a cold front through the area. Right now it appears there will not be enough moisture for widespread thunderstorms, however, this is a very dynamic system and there will be a few isolated storms Saturday afternoon. Any storm that forms could be strong as this front moves through. We will see cooler conditions on Sunday and then the big warm up begins. Many of us will see upper 70s to near 80 by the middle of next week.
