If you're tired of summer heat and humidity, here's some good news for you.

We are past the climatologically hottest part of the year.

Average high temperatures now are on the decline and will continue to drop through the end of the year.

Our average, high temperatures in Shreveport peak at 95 degrees during the first couple weeks of August.

On the 16th of the month, the average high temperature falls a degree to 94.

By Sept. 1, the average high is 92 degrees.

By the 22nd of the month, when fall arrives, average highs are back in the mid-80s.

And by Nov. 1, our average highs will have dropped to 73 degrees.

This doesn't necessarily mean we're done with any heatwaves.

We still can see sizzling temperatures for a little while longer.

High temperatures can reach the triple digits through September. And 90 degrees has been seen as late as Oct. 30.

But for those of you ready for some cooler weather, we'll start talking about it sooner rather than later!
