Today was very warm and muggy with highs in the mid to upper 80s and heat indices in the low 90s with plenty of sunshine across most of Southwest Louisiana. Tonight will be very muggy and air conditioners will be working overtime; lows will only be in the mid 70s but the heat indices will stay near or just above 80 degrees! Tuesday will be much like today with highs in the mid to upper 80s and heat indices in the low 90s. But a few isolated afternoon showers are possible tomorrow with a 20% chance of rain in the afternoon. Severe storms are possible over Northern Louisiana tomorrow afternoon but not in SW LA. Wednesday will be our best chance of rain and thunderstorms as a cold front approaches our area with a 40% chance of rain. A few stronger storms are also possible on Wednesday especially the farther north you go. A few showers will remain in the forecast for Thursday and Friday with a 20% chance of rain; otherwise it will be warm and humid with heat indices near or above the 90 degree mark. Slightly drier air may move in by the weekend and that means rain is unlikely but the warm weather will not go away!
