CBS19 WEATHER: Heat Advisories continue into the weekend

Check out the latest forecast from your CBS19 Weather Team!

TEXAS, USA — It's the weekend East Texas! We made it through a very hot week. Friday marked the 4th straight day the temperature topped 100-degrees and Friday was the hottest day of the year, so far. Friday's official high in Tyler was 103. Lufkin hot 100. Another Heat Advisory will be in effect Saturday from 11AM to 7PM. The heat index, of the combination of the temperature and dew point, will climb to between 105 and 109 Saturday afternoon for at least three hours. 

This heat wave is peaking and there may be some relief on the way by the start of next week. A rare summer cold front arrives late Sunday and helps to initiate a few showers and thunderstorms Sunday evening and again Monday. Rainfall amounts of up to a half-inch will be possible.

THIS WEEKEND:

Sunny skies are in the forecast for Saturday with a light south-southwest breeze at 5 to 10 mph. The temperatures will climb to around 100-degrees early in the afternoon. The heat index will approach 105 degrees by 1PM and stay there through early evening. The peak heat index will occur around 4 to 5 PM as the air temperature could reach a new record high for the date. Right now, we are forecasting a high of 104-degrees. Once again, an isolated shower or thunderstorm could form but will move very slowly, so at this point the chance of rain looks to be 20-percent of less. 

Sunday starts off sunny and warm with temperatures in the mid-70s. We should continue to warm up and reach a hot high of 99. A front will move into East Texas Sunday evening. This will bring a chance for scattered thunderstorms by Sunday evening. The wind will turn to the west-northwest and some cooler air will begin to filter into the region. This cooler air could result in high temperatures in parts of East Texas in the upper 80s Monday afternoon with a 50% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms.
