EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - W will start off with early morning clouds giving way to mostly sunny skies with daytime highs topping out in the lower 90′s on Friday afternoon.

The one variable that will offset the hot and muggy weather will be the occasional southerly breezes coming in off the Gulf of Mexico.

By the end of this week and the upcoming weekend, though, the ridge of high pressure begins to breakdown as an upper low retrogrades to the west from the east coast. That may be just enough of a weather pattern shift to where we drop temperatures a few degrees and introduce some low-end rain chances to the Piney Woods.

We will bring back a low-end, 20% chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms late Friday and will keep that 20% chance in play on Saturday. While the odds of rain are not anything to ride home about, at least a few residents would be on the receiving end of a few cooling downpours to offset the warmth and offer those dry lawns a brief drink of water.

With high pressure moving back overhead on Sunday and much of next week, we will drop the rain chances and bring back the unseasonably hot weather as more record highs will be challenged on a daily basis.
