HOT & HUMID WITH A FEW STORMS

Posted: Updated:

The heat, humidity, and hit-and-miss storms returned to central Louisiana on Monday.

HEAT & HUMIDITY

There was little overall change in the hot, humid weather as the new business week began. Morning lows averaged in the middle 70s with DeRidder the warm spot with 78 and Winnfield at 70.

Daytime highs ranged through the 90s with heat indices at or above 105 degrees. International Airport (AEX) had the highest temperature this month with 97. It was even hotter at Winnfield with 99 and Esler Airport with 98. It's interesting that one of the lower highs was also in the metro-Charles Park maxed out at 92.

HIT-AND-MISS STORMS

The daytime heating, subtle shortwave energy aloft, and outflow boundaries once again triggered showers and thunderstorms, but the coverage was low-I estimate about 30% based on weather watcher reports. It looks like the heaviest rain was around Woodworth and Jonesville, where an inch may have fallen.

OUTLOOK

Tuesday will be similar-I have 30% up then as well. By Wednesday, drier air will move in from the north and northeast and this will lower the chance for rain. Better moisture returns by Friday, so the chance for rain increases by then.

Take care.
