SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Temperatures are climbing into the triple digits.

According to our KSLA First Alert meteorologists, much of the ArkLaTex is under a heat advisory. And another advisory will be issued Monday, July 26.

“I feel like we normally have really hot summers; I don’t know if it’s just me, but it just feels hotter,” Lainey Smith said.

“I’m sweating for no reason right now,” Carey Washington said.

Just earlier this year, the ArkLaTex experienced historic winter storms. KSLA News 12 asked people whether they prefer the extreme heat or extreme cold.

“I like being comfortable,” Washington said. “I don’t like to be too cold; I don’t like to be too hot.”

On the other hand, Smith said she enjoyed February’s winter storms.

“Like 60 degrees is cold here; then all of a sudden, it’s snowing here,” Smith said. “I liked it; I enjoyed it.”

Sylvia Johnson said she prefers to be cold but would not want to experience the winter storms again.
