    Through this afternoon expect continued pop-up showers thanks to southerly flow providing ample moisture. Hot and humid conditions will persist across Southwest Louisiana for those of us not seeing a cooling shower.  Overnight warm and humid conditions persist with lows only dropping into the upper 70s. But, with ample moisture present we will feel like the 80s for much of the night.
