WEST MONROE, La. - (7/26/2018) Good Wednesday morning! It's another pleasant start outside this morning with temperatures in the upper 60's and lower 70's and dew points in the 60's. By late July standards, it doesn't get much better than this. Northeasterly winds have helped tap into a cooler, drier air source over the past few days which has helped keep conditions dry and skies have been clear. High temps will be around 94° this afternoon with lower humidity and winds from the NNE. There is no chance for rain and the heat index will top out right around 100°.
Overnight will be similar to what we felt this morning, lows in the lower 70's when you wake up tomorrow with light winds and clear skies.
Tomorrow we continue our gradual warm-up back into the mid 90's. Humidity will stay relatively low again, though, with dew points in the 60's. Skies will be sunny with high in the mid 90's and mostly sunny skies through the day.
