Barry Weakens Further, Hot & Humid Days Ahead
Heat indices could top out in the triple digits.
After a wet several days, things are starting to look a lot drier, although the heat and humidity will still make things uncomfortable for those of us who venture outside. Our western counties could see a few brief cooling showers, but most of us will not see any relief from the heat. Expect temperatures to cruise well into the 90s and the humidity could make it feel like 100°. The nights will be mild and muggy, with lows only falling into the mid-to-lower 70s.
As per the 10:00 PM update Sunday, Barry has weakened to tropical depression status, with winds blowing at 35 mph. Barry will continue its slow march through Louisiana into Arkansas, where double-digit rain totals are still in the forecast. Over the past 24 hours the southern portions of the Bayou State have seen upwards of 8 inches of rain, with even more still on the way. Expect Barry to continue to weaken as it travels northwards before dissipating early this coming week,
Monday: Mostly sunny. Hot. High: 94. Wind: N 5-10 mph
Monday Night: Partly cloudy, mild. Low: 74. Wind: Light
Tuesday: Hot and stagnant. High: 95. Wind: Light
