EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - The ridge of high pressure that has remained in control of our weather all week long has started to loosen its grip on east Texas. As a result, that will open up a small window for isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms to enter the picture on Saturday afternoon.

We have a bit more confidence that Saturday will offer everyone a slightly better chance of being on the receiving end of a cooling shower or thunderstorm. Even though the chance of rain is only 30%, it sure beats the 0% chance that has been with us for over a week now.

Saturday’s 30% chance of rain and storms will mainly be for areas along and east of the Highway 69 corridor and the best timing to see that will be in the mid-to-late afternoon hours.

If you do not get in on any rain this weekend, which is likely for most east Texas communities, then it will just remain warm and humid with highs in the lower 90′s.

By the time we get to Sunday and beyond, that ridge of high pressure will strengthen overhead, bringing back the dry weather as temperatures really begin to heat up by next week in our part of the state.

This will lead to mostly sunny skies with unseasonably warm weather as we can call it ‘hot’ in east Texas since daytime highs will be trending about ten degrees above average this week with highs topping out in the middle 90′s.

This means that daily record highs will be in jeopardy on several occasions next week.
