Hot and humid into the week with rain chances on the way
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Regardless of your opinion of Summer it still continues as we approach the midway point of August. Highs today reached the mid-90s as expected with plenty of sunshine. Lows tonight will drop to the mid-70s, as they have every night since I arrived in the ArkLaTex.
Sunday is looking hotter, highs expected to reach the very upper-90s and very well could cross over the 100-degree mark. Heat index values will definitely pass 100 degrees and how long and high they get will determine whether or not we are issued a heat advisory. Isolated showers and storms we have seen throughout the summer will likely not happen tomorrow. Lows will drop to the mid-70s.
The extended forecast is looking hot. Highs are likely to reach the 100-degree mark going into the workweek. Our next weather maker moves into the region as we head into the late week with rain chances increasing as a cold front moves in. Temperatures may drop into the upper-80s Thursday and Friday, we’ll have to wait and see.
