High Heat

National Weather Service Shreveport LA – An upper level ridge of high pressure will maintain very warm temperatures with a slight chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms through the end of this work week. With temperatures climbing into the mid and possibly upper 90s, afternoon heat indices may approach 105 degrees through Friday. This ridge will weaken this weekend with the approach of a couple of weak upper level disturbances and an associated weak cold frontal system, which should result in an increase in scattered showers and thunderstorms, and slightly cooler temperatures.
