First Alert: Drying out and heating up in the days ahead

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - With a ridge of high pressure building overhead the next few days, we will have sinking air rule the day, which will lead to temperatures climbing back into the middle 90′s. The muggy air will put our heat indices in that 102-105 degree range, which means you will want to make sure you and your family are staying hydrated and taking heat precautions seriously.

The rain chance is not zero, but it will be around 10% or less, which means most of us will not be on the receiving end of any cooling showers in the days ahead.

The infamous heat ridge will hold for the rest of the week and into the early part of the weekend before it breaks down, allowing some deeper moisture to our east to rotate back in our direction. This will lead to some widely scattered showers and thunderstorms to enter the equation as we get into the early-to-middle part of next week.
