We are in for a hot week especially Monday and Tuesday as temps rise and heat indices reach 107 to 112 degrees.  

A heat advisory is in effect on Monday from late morning through evening.

High pressure will keep things quite hot and humid," said WWL-TV Meteorologist Alexandra Cranford.  "The trend continues through Tuesday, making for a scorching start to the work and school week.  Please remember to drink lots of water and take breaks if you're active outside in the next couple of days."

Some showes are possible and could develop in the afternoons and early evening.  

By Wednesday and Thursday, a front will sag near us and help showers and thunderstorms to form.

There are no tropical threats this week
