BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - There is no relief from the heat and humidity through the end of June. Temperatures will remain several degrees above normal for not only daytime highs but also morning lows. Feels like temperatures will rise above 100° each day. We may keep humidity levels low enough Monday and Tuesday to avoid a Heat Advisory (108° or >). But the oppressive humidity returns as early as Wednesday bumping those numbers back into the Advisory criteria.

The weather stays mainly dry as we remain under the influence of high pressure. The ridge will be just enough displaced to keep a few showers in the forecast Monday and Tuesday afternoons. Don’t count on rain though for your backyard as rain chances don’t get any higher than 20%. We stay dry to end the rest of the week.

High temperatures will continue to climb by end of week. Highs could reach 100° in many locations by Thursday and stay in the lower 100°s into the weekend. A surge of moisture and a few easterly waves will bring rain chances back to the forecast for the start of next week. We aren’t talking a huge change, but we go from possible 100° highs to highs in the mid 90°s and isolated to scattered afternoon t-showers.
