It feels great this morning with temperatures in the low to mid 70s, and for at least one more day, low relative humidity.
The warm-up will be a quick one later this morning. Expect mostly sunny skies and afternoon highs headed into the mid and upper 90s. We will likely see a few areas along I-20 in east Texas and northwest Louisiana hit the 100 degree mark for an hour or two this afternoon. A light northeast breeze of 5 to 10 miles per hour is expected throughout the day.
A returning south wind tonight will begin a rise in humidity Thursday through the weekend, with afternoon highs hitting 100 degrees in most areas Thursday through Saturday. Heat advisories will probably be needed for a few days as heat index values reach that 105 degree mark again.
Fortunately, it looks like this 2nd July heatwave will be short-lived. A frontal boundary will drop in midday Monday bringing some much needed rainfall and cooler temperatures. Highs for much of the region look like they could dip into the 80s Monday and Tuesday. Forecast models take the rainfall out fairly quick on Tuesday, with sunshine returning as we move through the day.
