First Alert: The heat returns as we close out the week, head into the weekend

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - We are looking for partly cloudy skies overnight with lows in the middle 70′s.

Remnant moisture feeding into Laura’s circulation will keep a 40% chance of scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms in the forecast for Friday before they drop off to low-end chances this weekend.

With rain chances dropping off, we will get back to more typical, late August weather as daytime highs find their way back into the middle 90′s this weekend and next week.  When you factor in the southerly winds and high moisture content, our heat index values will be in the lower 100′s, making for more discomfort and the issuance of heat advisories for a handful of East Texas counties.

A few isolated-to-widely scattered downpours will be possible next week, but at this time, we see rain chances getting no higher than 30% on any particular day.
