DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - It will be partly cloudy overnight with lows in the upper 60′s.

Small disturbances passing overhead will interact with daytime heating and remnant outflow boundaries to keep our rain and thunderstorm chance at 30% on Thursday afternoon under partly cloudy skies.

Outside of any cooling showers and thunderstorms, it will be warm with highs topping out in the lower 90′s on Thursday afternoon.

Friday’s rain chance will drop off to 20%, which means most areas will stay dry. In return, look for daytime highs to top out in the lower 90′s under partly-to-mostly sunny skies to end the week.

A slightly better chance of rain and thunderstorms will briefly return on Saturday at 40% as another disturbance tracks our way, giving us those slightly higher odds for coming across a cooling downpour as we enter the weekend.

It does appear a hotter and drier forecast will take shape from Sunday through early next week as skies go mostly sunny and dry. In return, we will likely see our hottest temperatures of the year so far take shape as daytime highs climb into the middle 90′s. When you factor in the humidity, our heat index values will be topping out over the century mark for the first time this summer, giving us our first real taste of the summer heat here in east Texas.
