Your 7 Day Forecast

No major changes are expected to occur with our weather over the next seven days.  This means more heat and humidity with scattered afternoon and early evening showers, although some rain may occur overnight and in the morning too.  Tonight will be warm and muggy with temperatures falling into the mid and upper 70s along and south of I-10 while areas north of I-10 make it into the lower 70s; however the heat indices will be in the low 80s!  Wednesday through Tuesday of next week will be nearly carbon copies of today with highs in the low 90s and lows in the mid 70s along with a 40% chance of mainly afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms.  So keep the umbrella or raincoat handy because you may need them any day this week through early next week.  

We now have the 4th named tropical system of the year as Tropical Depression # 5 gained enough strength to be upgraded to Tropical Storm Dolly early Tuesday morning.  Dolly will make landfall along the northern coastline of Mexico Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning as a moderate strength tropical storm.  Dolly poses NO threat to Southwest Louisiana.  There are no other areas we are monitoring for development at this time; however some of the computer models show some development next week over the Atlantic Ocean.
