Hot and humid weather will continue through the weekend. A few isolated afternoon and evening showers will give little relief from the dry conditions that have caused 17 East Texas counties to issue burn bans including Smith County. High temperatures will be near 98 degrees during the next several days with the heat index, or a measure of how hot it actually feels when the effects of humidity are considered expected to top 100 degrees.
