DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - The clear skies, dry air, and near calm winds will lead to another chilly night in the Piney Woods as overnight lows drop into the lower-to-middle 50′s.
Thursday will be filled with lots of blue sky and warm temperatures in the afternoon, as daytime highs top out in the middle 80′s with winds shifting back to the north-northeast at 10 mph.
High pressure at the surface and the upper levels of the atmosphere will continue to dominate our weather landscape this week, which will give us sun-filled skies and dry conditions as we go from chilly mornings to warm afternoons.
A notable dip in the jet stream will keep cold fronts advancing in our direction for the foreseeable future, with another one moving through on Thursday and a third front possibly pushing in on Sunday. These next two cold frontal passages will be weaker than the initial front that blew through Monday morning, but they will still get the job done and reinforce the dry air and low humidity that are already in place.
We will see afternoon highs warm into the 80′s on Thursday afternoon before the passage of a second cold front arrives, reinforcing the cool, dry, and pleasant weather already have in place. This will knock daytime highs back down a few notches, dropping into the upper 70′s for Friday and Saturday.
This will lead to a fantastic weather weekend as we enter the first weekend in October as we bask under blue skies and seasonally cool, pleasant conditions.
