Plus, social media has people caught up in a "bubble." In fact, the Internet is behind the popularity of a sport taking over soccer fields all over, called "Bubble Ball!" Watch how it's done at noon.
In weather, the chance of rain remains limited to isolated afternoon thunderstorms this week, with no huge change to our hot and dry weather pattern. Temperatures should rise to around 96 this afternoon, but it will feel like 105 to 107! A heat advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service for south central Louisiana from 11 a.m. through 7 p.m. Meteorologist Ben Terry will have all the details during his live, local forecast at noon. You can also keep track of the weather with our mobile apps for Apple or Android devices.
