This week's weather in East Texas has been somewhat unpredictable it seems. Although the forecast called for a chance of showers and thunderstorms, we had several severe thunderstorm warnings and even a couple of tornado warnings. Now that we're getting ready to head into the weekend it looks as if the pendulum will be swinging the other way and we'll be going headfirst into summer!

The forecast, at this time, calls for abundant sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper-90s, if you're doing anything outdoors you'll definitely want to stay hydrated and find shade often. It is going to be humid as well and heat advisories will most likely be issued across East Texas.

When heading out to one of these East Texas events be prepared for the heat, it'll be here through mid-September!

Here's what's happening across East Texas this weekend:
