The combination of abundant sunshine, high humidity levels & little if any rainfall will result in hot temperatures and maximum heat indices reaching 105 to 110 degrees this afternoon across most of southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi.
A brief, much drier weather pattern is expected to bring rain chances down quite a bit on Today which will mean hotter temperatures rising into the 90 to 95 degree range. The combination of these hot temperatures and typical August humidity will push heat indices up to 105 to 110 degrees in many locations for a longer duration than we've seen lately with all the rainfall. A heat advisory is in effect Thursday from 9 am to 7 pm. Higher rain chances return for Friday and the weekend.
Climate data for August 17.
