Summer highs in September continue.. some relief possible late this week

Weather

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) –  A strengthening ridge of high pressure early this week means a continuation of our September heatwave into the first week of October. It still looks like we could see some relief late this week and into the weekend.

If you’re outside before 10 a.m. you will be able to beat the heat as temperatures will go from the low 70s this morning to the upper 80s by noon. Highs will be in the low to mid-90s with a light southeast breeze keeping humidity high but not oppressive. Heat index values will be just under 100 degrees. 

The ridge of high pressure will keep any showers across the region to our southwest. Expect little more than partly cloudy skies at times this afternoon and evening. See the latest loop of futurecast below:

Burn bans are holding across much of east Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas due to the ongoing drought and heat. A cold front will approach the region Thursday/Friday and this may bring some lightly scattered rain. Even the GFS (American model) which is the most aggressive in bringing the front through shows very light accumulations.

GFS rainfall accumulations through Saturday night

Unfortunately, it won’t be enough to help. Forecast models are split on any potential cooler temperatures Friday through next weekend. For now I’ve held us in the upper 80s, with perhaps a subtle wind shift to the north dropping humidity. Some areas of Arkansas and Oklahoma could drop into the low/mid-80s – closer to normal for early October.
