DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - The hot and humid weather will continue through this weekend, which puts us right on par for what it should look and feel like in East Texas this time of year.

That means morning lows will be in the middle 70′s with daytime highs climbing right back into the middle 90′s under partly cloudy skies. Considering the higher humidity levels, our heat index values will be hovering around 105-degrees each of the next several afternoons, which does border on heat advisory criteria.

The only chance for a brief cool down will come from of our small, 20% chance of a passing afternoon shower or thundershower each afternoon. This will come courtesy of the sea breeze front that moves in from the Gulf of Mexico.

Once we get into Sunday and early next week, though, many models point to another pattern shift, one that will send another summer cold front dropping down into Texas. At the same time, a trough of low pressure moving westward through the northern Gulf of Mexico may also serve to enhance our rain odds next week.

At this time, our rain odds will remain at 20% from now through Saturday before our rain odds jump to 40% on Sunday. By early next week, rain chances will ramp up to 60% as we will have a likely chance to encounter some showers and thunderstorms due to the pattern shift.

With increasing rain chances by early next week, we will take an edge off the heat as daytime highs come down into the upper 80′s and lower 90′s.
