It’s likely to be hot in Louisiana for our forecast, but at least it’s still only June. Maybe, hopefully, the locals aren’t yet thoroughly exhausted by the heat and humidity.
At 1056AM, CT, it was already 88 degrees in Shreveport, with mostly cloudy skies. Dewpoints in the mid 70s meant it was an absolutely sweltering day in northern Louisiana. It is a late spring pattern without a doubt, with a strong trough near the Canadian border, with a surface ridge becoming established over the southeastern US, allowing it to get to near 100 across much of the region today.
As low pressure moves across the Canadian border, it will induce southerly flow from the Gulf of Mexico across Louisiana, increasing the humidity, but also clouds, which may shave a degree or two off of high temperatures, but it will still be plenty hot. There is a slight chance of rain closer to the coast and east of the Mississippi, but not high enough to leave it in the forecast for Shreveport.

Oof. Here’s hoping that there are more clouds than are presently in the forecast, and maybe that will be a little bit of relief. It’s pretty clear out there today, though.
