SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Happy Friday! Not going to be as uncomfortable today but it will still be hot. Sunny skies continue to dominate as the high pressure is still over us, highs today will reach the low-90s. We will likely not see much in terms of cloud cover, even this afternoon when it is typical for puffy clouds to pop up, thanks to lower humidity. Lows tonight will drop to the very low-70s, one of the last few days in this forecast where the lows will be that high.

This weekend? Back to the uncomfortable heat with highs in the upper-90s. Heat index values will likely reach the low triple digits and it will be sunny for most of the day. I’m putting a 20% chance for some showers during the afternoon on both days. Lows Saturday night will drop to the low-70s, Sunday, upper-60s.

Invest 98-L no more! Tropical Depression Nine has formed in the Central Caribbean Sea and is currently gaining strength. At this time, the system is forecast to become a hurricane in the coming days and eventually make landfall in southwest Florida Wednesday morning, possibly as a major hurricane. This is a developing storm and we will continue to monitor it as the days progress. When it does become a tropical storm, it will likely be given the name Hermine.

The extended forecast is looking much more like fall with highs next week in the 80s, even the low-80s on some days. Cool mornings are making a comeback too!
