Most of Louisiana gets a bit of relief from the oppressive heat that has been plaguing the state over the past few weeks.  State Climatologist Barry Keim says a cold front began moving across the state Monday night.  

He says the dry air associated with this cold front will have you almost thinking it's fall.
"By tomorrow morning, most of the state should see morning temperatures in the mid 60s.  Now we haven't seen temperatures like that in about three months."

Keim says afternoon highs this week will hang around 90 degrees.  He adds that low humidity levels this week will keep rain chances at a minimum.  Keim says this front should stay with us for the rest of the work week.

"By the weekend, it's not going to quite be over, but things will start changing back more towards a hotter and more humid regime."

Unfortunately, he says coastal parishes won't see much relief because there's just too much hot water in the region keeping humidity levels elevated.  Keim suggests residents make some outdoor plans this week and soak in this great weather.

"So, by all means, get out there, embrace it, enjoy it while you can because it's going to be a really, really pretty week across the state of Louisiana."
