HEAT, HUMIDITY, AND A FEW STORMS

Posted: Updated:

Hot and muggy weather hung on for another day in central Louisiana with some folks getting wet.

Morning lows continued to climb in response to increasing humidity. Anacoco, Bellwood, and Oakdale reported 68 degrees while several points around Alexandria, including AEX, Charles Park, Good Earth, and D.G. Hunter Power Plant, only fell to 73 degrees. The daily average is 72 degrees and the record low is a cool 57 in 1940.

The day got hot before convection developed and in between showers and thunderstorms. Many went all the way up to 98 degrees but Jonesville only saw 88 degrees. The humidity sent peak heat indices past 100 degrees. The daily average is 94 degrees and the record is 104 set in 1999.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms brought generally modest rainfall amounts. Amounts around one inch were noted around south Avoyelles near Cottonport and Mansura. Other locations, especially in the western part of central Louisiana, received no rain.

The weather pattern will remain unchanged for Thursday.
