Heat Advisory in effect for South Louisiana

Weather

A Heat Advisory is now in place for South Louisiana through 10 P.M. Friday.

High temperatures and high humidity will lead to heat indices or “feels like temperatures” between 108°F – 112°F. Some spots could have a heat index over 112°F.

This means that dangerous heat is expected through the evening hours.

In fact, we will likely see Heat Advisories all weekend long. For more information, click here.

Be sure to take frequent breaks from the heat, stay cool, stay hydrated, and never leave kids or pets in vehicles. Also, be sure to know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

Keep in mind, your pets can get heat stroke, too.
