(KSLA) - Happy Monday ArkLaTex. Heat Advisory is back on Tuesday so make sure to exercise caution if you have to be outside for work or play. Some rain is possible with the next couple of days bringing the best chance of the week for getting wet.

We’re looking dry overnight. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s under mostly clear skies.

Tuesday: you guessed it! Another scorcher! Highs will be around the mid 90s and maybe only a degree or two ‘cooler’ but we’ll still have heat indices reaching the triple digits in the afternoon and evening hours. Rain and thunderstorm chances look better for the afternoon and evening but not everyone will see rain!

Wednesday will bring mostly a repeat with some rain around, otherwise hot and humid with afternoon temperatures in the mid 90s.

Thursday and Friday will go back up to the upper 90s with those high temperatures. So, expect more of the same heat. Make sure you’re staying hydrated in the heat throughout the day. Water is the best choice, even over other sport drinks. There will be about a 10-20% chance for a quick shower. So again, most of you will stay dry and not see a drop of rain. I would not rely on any rain to help cool temperatures down.

By this upcoming weekend, it will still be very hot. Temperatures will heat up to the upper 90s to near 100 degrees in the afternoon. Since it is so hot for several days, I think we can safely call this the beginning of the “dog days of summer”. This weekend will also bring little to no rain with only a 10% chance for a quick shower. So, the rain chance is not zero, but it is close. Any weekend plans look good to go, but it will be hot.

Have a great work week!
