DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - It will be warm and muggy overnight as lows only drop into the upper 70′s under partly cloudy skies.

Thursday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with just a 20% chance of isolated, afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Otherwise, it will be another scorcher as highs top out around the century mark.

By Friday, a trough of low pressure along the northern Gulf coast will team up with another disturbance rotating around the heat ridge to enhance our rain odds to 60% for Friday afternoon. This should lead to better areal coverage across deep east Texas and provide us with our best chance to get wet in the next week.

We will then drop the rain chance to 30% on Saturday and then down to 20% for Sunday and Monday of next week as we deal with rain coverage that is more isolated in nature.

Outside of any rain activity, it will remain hot under partly cloudy skies as highs top out right around the century mark. The better rain odds for Friday should hold our temperatures down into the middle-to-upper 90′s, keeping us in double digit territory. Beyond that, we will be flirting with 100-degree readings coming up next week.

Rainfall amounts look to average around one-half inch through next week, with some areas possibly receiving more in the heavier downpours.
