Winds will pick up out of the south this weekend. That will bring a rapid increase in the humidity. It will also result in hotter temperatures with highs this weekend in the low 90s.

Look for that rain chance to gradually shift South Monday and Tuesday.
As of right now, models indicate that the heaviest rain will likely occur over areas near and north of Interstate 30. Here rainfall totals in excess of 1 inch will be possible. Rainfall totals will likely be less than a half an inch over east Texas in Northwest Louisiana.
