After a seasonally warm Monday, the weather pattern heated up Tuesday as high pressure built aloft.
Afternoon high temperatures ranged from 89 at Fairfield to 96 at Ville Platte. The humidity made it feel even hotter with peak heat indices reaching 100 degrees. The 30-year average is 89 degrees and the daily record was 100 degrees in 2011.
Wednesday offers little change; it will be hot and humid with only a 10% chance of a passing shower or thunderstorm.
