Good Sunday evening everyone! The storms overnight most cleared early this morning before many of us woke up. Some light showers may linger this morning, but most will remain dry. The storms have also left a little more cloud cover, but we should clear a little by the afternoon hours.
Again, today’s going to be HOT! We have an Excessive Heat Warning in place for northwest Louisiana and parts of East Texas form Marion county and south! This is where our “feels-like” temperatures could reach as high as 115 degrees in some places. Make sure to use caution if you have to be outside in the heat for longer periods of time. Take breaks, drink plenty of water, and wear light colored and loose fitting clothing to beat the heat!
Overnight skies are clear with temperatures dropping to the mid and upper 70s.
Excessive Heat Warning has now been extended into Monday until 7pm for the same areas!
Monday and Tuesday will be mostly dry with highs climbing a little closer to 100! The heat stretch will continue while providing little chances for rain. For Monday, heat index values may near 110 yet again warranting another Heat Advisories. Rain chances will be fairly slim with only around a 10% chance.
Checking the tropics, things are quiet right now, but we’re heading towards the peak season in August so we’ll keep you updated!
Stay cool and have a fantastic Sunday!
