SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Happy Tuesday! We have seen some much-needed rainfall in the ArkLaTex but sadly most of you will have missed it by the time the rain moved out. Tomorrow we should see the heat and humidity combo return and remain through the rest of the work week. Portions of the ArkLaTex are under a Heat Advisory until 8 PM tomorrow with the 4 southwesternmost counties in East Texas under Excessive Heat Warning.

Tonight we will remain calm and dry as well as most of the day tomorrow. Shreveport has a small chance for rain, which is very unlikely, as a system looks to sideswipe the northernmost region of the ArkLaTex once again and possibly bring showers to the middle of the ArkLaTex.

The rest of this forecast isn’t looking good as that massive ridge of high-pressure rebuilds across the ArkLaTex. We will likely see an extended stretch of dangerous heat and dry conditions that will last through the upcoming weekend. Highs each day will be in the triple digits with feels like temperatures exceeding 110 on most days. Drought conditions will continue to worsen and expand over the next week until we can get a more substantial change in the pattern.
