Blistering Hot Again Today in Shreveport Bossier
It's going to be another blazing hot day across Shreveport Bossier. In fact, the entire region will continue to feel this searing heat. The National Weather Service has again issued an Excessive Heat Warning until at least 7pm Wednesday night for all of northwest and north central Louisiana. This warning also included northeast Texas, southwest Arkansas and southeast Oklahoma.
Hot Hot Will It Get Today?
The NWS says we will experience dangerously hot temperatures between 100 and 105 on Wednesday with the heat index values climbing to near 114 degrees.
This extreme heat and humidity will significantly increase the potential for heat related illnesses, especially for folks who work outdoors or anyone who stays outside for an extended period of time.
