This morning we are waking up with a wide range of temperatures across East Texas. We are seeing middle 50s in rural areas to the middle 60s in the cities. This afternoon we will see lots of sunshine with highs reaching the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. It looks as though we will see a repeat of this tomorrow with highs once again approaching 90 degrees. A cold front will move through on Friday but thanks to a layer of warm air off the surface and a lack of deep moisture, we will more than likely see no rain. Highs Friday will range from the low 80s northwest to the lower to maybe middle 90s in the extreme south, depending on the front's speed.
Saturday looks very pleasant with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s with a breeze out of the east north east. Our front will move back to the north as a warm front Sunday, bringing a slight chance of a shower to the area. But like Friday, a layer of warm are off the surface looks to put a cap on thunderstorm development. The beginning of next week looks warm and very humid giving us a slim chance at an isolated thunderstorm in the afternoon. But right now, it looks as though our next significant chance at rain will hold off until at least next Wednesday.
