Late summer heat wave delivers near record highs later this week
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - High pressure in the area will continue to bring the heat this week. In fact, temperatures will be trending even hotter in the coming days.
Highs will reach the mid to upper 90°s each day. The only saving grace is that the local area will stay on the right side of the ridge bringing drier, less humid air. This means feels like temperatures will be close to actual air temperatures. It will still be plenty hot so take heat-related precautions.
The forecast stays mainly dry. A spotty shower or two will be possible today and again Wednesday. All other days this week will see mostly sunny skies. Watch for a patch or two of light fog each morning.
A weak cold front is set to arrive Friday leaving behind only a slight cool down into the weekend. A stronger cold front will work into the area Sunday into Monday. This front could spark off a few storms, especially Monday of next week. A more significant cool down will be associated with this second cold front.
