High pressure will get stronger over Texas through the weekend. That will keep high temperatures in the mid- and upper 90s and the heat index between 100 and 105 degrees across East Texas. There could be a few afternoon thunderstorms starting south of our area and moving northward until sunset when daytime heating ends, but the chance of rain will be about 10 percent at best in most areas. Winds will be from the south or south-east around 10 mph
