A ridge of high pressure extends into our area. With that being said conditions will not change much throughout the next several days. With High Pressure, we can expect clear skies, light & variable winds and low rain chances. This pattern is typical during the summer months. So, we will only see a slight chance for a few showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. This Ridge will remain anchored over our area throughout the 7day planner. Temperatures will be on the rise and Humidity values will stay high. This will keep our Heat Index ranging from 100-108 throughout the next several days. Winds will be light to moderate and mainly out of the South with high humidity values.
For the rest of the day
Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with In & Out cloud cover and a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms through the afternoon and early evening. High temperatures will range through the 90's with high humidity values making the "Feels Like Temperature" range from 101-106. Most of the viewing area will see partly cloudy skies and there will only be a few, isolated showers. As of 12:00pm, there were only a few light showers in the area of Beauregard Parish.
