In weather, our rain chances will decrease to just a 20 percent coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Highs today will surge into the middle 90s with a heat index up to 105. The highest heat index values today will be across the northern and central portions of Louisiana, where a heat advisory is in effect. This advisory includes Vernon Parish for heat index values briefly exceeding 108 later today. How long will this pattern last? Meteorologist Ben Terry has the answer during his live, local forecast at noon.
