Weekend Weather At Your Fingertips
Clear skies overnight with lows in the upper 70s.
TYLER, Texas (KLTV/KTRE) - Good evening, East Texas! Here is the weather where you live... Mostly clear/clear skies overnight with temperatures cooling into the upper 70s by morning. Winds overnight out of the south southwest, five to ten miles per hour, with gusts up to fifteen miles per hour. High temperatures Sunday afternoon were in the upper 90s for many, but some did make it to the 100s. We will do the same on Monday, highs are expected to be around 100 degrees under mostly sunny skies. This heat will continue through Wednesday, and we will see the return of the familiar Heat Advisory to East Texas as early as Monday. Unfortunately, the forecast does look dry for the next couple of days. The low chance for rain we had in the forecast over the weekend has come to an end, and we will likely stay dry through the first half of the week. Wednesday afternoon, a cold front will move into East Texas as the upper-level area of high pressure (the “heat dome”) moves west.
This front will do little to cool temperatures for us Wednesday afternoon but will drive shower and thunderstorm activity into East Texas as early as Wednesday afternoon, with that activity expected to continue into Thursday. It is possible we could see some strong to severe storms Wednesday night, though the Storm Prediction Center has not outlined East Texas in any risks as of this evening. Right now, if we were to see any severe weather, wind appears to be the main threat. Additional shower and thunderstorm activity is expected Thursday through next Sunday, maybe continuing into the following week. Current Climate Prediction Center outlooks, which carry us almost to the end of the month, favor above normal precipitation for East Texas. Definitely good news for our on-going drought across the area and state. With the rain we had last week coming after the Drought Monitor update, I hope to see some improvement with this week’s update. Even if we don’t, I suspect the days and weeks ahead will help alleviate some of the dryness we’ve experienced lately. Here’s to keeping our fingers crossed, Lord knows I don’t want to do any rain dances. Have a great evening and week.
