SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Shew! It is hot out there! And more triple digits are on the way through midweek. A Heat Advisory is in place across most of the ArkLaTex Tuesday afternoon as well.

We’ll stay clear and quiet overnight. Look for warm and muggy conditions with temperatures not dropping below 80 in most spots until just prior to sunrise on Tuesday.

Tomorrow is more of the same with measured high temperatures exceeding the 100-degree mark in some places across the ArkLaTex and yes, it will feel hotter. A Heat Advisory has been issued for most of the region from Noon until 7 PM tomorrow. With the humidity it will feel like 105+ at times. Plan on taking those heat precautions once again if you have to work outdoors. Isolated showers are possible during your Tuesday afternoon but still unlikely with most spots staying dry.

Looking ahead to the extended forecast and good news on the rain front once again, very similar to last week. Rain chances increase Wednesday afternoon as a cold front moves into the region. Those rain chances will continue into Thursday and will be more widespread on that day with lower temperatures due to that cold front. Rain chances fizzle out by the weekend and increase again by next Monday, which we will have to wait and see how that evolves.

Have a great night!
