Most of Texas is enjoying a break from the extreme heat, but several areas will still top 100 degrees. Meanwhile, heat continues to be a big weather story nationwide with heat advisories on the East Coast, Central U.S. and out west, with much of the desert Southwest under excessive heat warnings.

As for rain, locally we have some hope for a few showers and thunderstorms. It’s a 30% chance this afternoon, mainly between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Odds are a little lower at 20% Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
