EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) – Today is the first of four consecutive days of first weather warnings to account for the unrelenting heat, which unfortunately will only get worse before it gets better.
The infamous heat dome will dominate our weather landscape as we progress through the weekend, allowing skies to be mostly clear at night and mostly sunny during the day. We’ll be baking in the hot June sun with very few clouds to provide any kind of relief. Worse still, the chances of any type of showers and refreshing thunderstorms after Friday are close to zero, as air descending aloft will keep these cumulus clouds from turning into afternoon showers.
We will have overnight lows in the upper 70s and daytime highs reaching around the century each day this week. Many areas will likely see highs reaching the lower 100s, making this our warmest spell in several years.
Also, the heat index values will reach between 105 and 108 every afternoon when you take humidity into account. I
There are signs that the heat dome will finally break down a bit early next week, which will open the door for a late June cold front that will spread south across eastern Texas from the end of Sunday to the beginning of next week. This frontal passage would bring us a slight chance of rain on Monday while mitigating the heat. Instead of highs in triple-digit territory, we’ll drop them into the mid-90s next week, which is still warm, but not as oppressive as the heat we’re currently facing and will face this weekend. end.
We also hope that this model change will bring us some opportunities to get wet, which I’m sure your lawns and gardens will appreciate too.
