(KSLA) - Happy Sunday ArkLaTex! Another scorcher on the way with highs in the upper 90s coupled with high humidity, which will make it feel more like the triple digits.

Sunday: HEAT ADVISORY begins today at 10 a.m. and goes until 7 p.m. this evening. It’ll be a mostly sunny day with a few clouds out to maybe hide the sun for a few moments. As far as rain goes, it’ll be very limited if any shows up along the eastern side of the ArkLaTex.

HEAT ADVISORY continues for Monday as well beginning at noon and lasting through 7pm once again as high temperatures and humidity will make for dangerous heat if you’re out too long without proper care.

By next week, we are tracking more of the hottest weather so far this year. Temperatures will be pushing the mid- to upper 90s. There’s a slim chance some places will be up to the triple digits Monday. And that’s not the feels-like temperature! Reason for this is a ridge of high pressure will be building in from the west. These ridges prevent rain and usually mean hot temperatures for that surrounding area. Make sure to stay hydrated!

Monday stays mostly dry with high heat and humidity and likely another heat advisory. Highs will be around 97 degrees and potentially higher. On Tuesday, Futuretrack is showing slightly better chances for rain. But I’m still keeping around a 20%-30% chance, so not a widespread cooldown event by any means.

TROPICS: There is now a 50% chance of the disturbance off the East Coast becoming a named storm in the next 2-5 days as it moves west toward Florida. Development into a depression is still possible later today or Monday. We’ll keep an eye on it!

Have a great weekend!
