Sweltering heat continues to impact Louisiana.  Much of the state is under a Heat Advisory today, with an Extreme Heat Warning in effect for northeast Louisiana.  

Danielle Manning, with the National Weather Service in Slidell, says a weak cold front will move across the state as we approach the weekend.
"I'd use that term loosely.  Technically it's a cold front, but you're not going to see a whole lot of difference in the temperatures.  The main impact will be that it will dry us out and it won't be quite as humid."

Wednesday, several locations in the state either matched or broke high temperature records.  Manning says this cold front won't bring afternoon high temperatures down very much.

"We'll still see temperatures in the mid to, even, upper 90s over the weekend, but our heat index values will not be nearly as high."

She says the state can expect the heat to continue through the rest of the summer.  Manning says everyone should take precautions dealing with these temperatures.

"It's a good idea to stay out of the sun during the peak heating hours of the day and take lots of breaks if you have to do any work outside."
