SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The first official day of summer will bring a hot and humid afternoon, with little chance for any rain until late in the weekend.
Due to the high humidity, we did see clouds develop overnight that may linger for a few hours this morning with temperatures in the mid 70s. This afternoon we will warm into the low and mid 90s, with heat index values likely approaching or exceeding 105 degrees in all areas. A Heat Advisory will be in effect until 7 p.m. If working outside take frequent breaks in the shade or air conditioning, and stay hydrated.
Expect more of the heat and humidity Saturday, so get the yard work done earlier as highs will remain in the 90s. A frontal boundary will approach the region Sunday. We should see an increase in cloud cover, and rain will develop late in the day. Outdoor plans should be fine in most areas through the afternoon.
This frontal boundary will sink south through the region on Monday, bringing our highest chance for rain and storms over the next 7 days. We may see a low-end severe weather threat, and rain totals through the middle of next week will be in the 1 to 2 inch range north of I-20.
This front should bring us a few day sin the 80s early next week.
