Hotter, drier SE Texas Forecast through Friday

Improving weekend rain chances followed by wet weather next week

BEAUMONT, Texas — High pressure will dominate our weather through Friday before moving out this weekend ahead of a wet pattern much of next week.

A stalled front, currently over the area, will lift north tonight.  A 20% coverage of showers, mainly for the Triangle, is forecast with patchy fog.  Low temperatures will range from near 70 in the Lakes to the mid 70s in the Triangle.

Wednesday looks like a sea breeze day which will result in a 20 to 30% coverage of showers and thunderstorms as high pressure will be building into West Texas. Triple digit heat indices are expected with highs in the lower 90s.

Thursday and Friday, the high will be over Texas which will likely boost highs into the middle 90s with slim rain chances and abundant sunshine.

Over the course of the weekend, the high will weaken and move out of Texas. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecast  both days with slightly "cooler" afternoon high temperatures.

Early next week, a surge of gulf moisture, upper-level disturbance, lack of capping and series of upper-level disturbances will result in likely rain chances which may last through much of next week.
