Some relief from the heat is on the way

After a weekend of sweltering temperatures across Louisiana, State Climatologist Barry Keim says some relief is on the way.  Keim says, in fact, a cold front has already moved across the state.

"And we have slightly cooler, but significantly dryer air that's moving into the region and this is going to continue to do so for the next couple of days."

He says this front will bring significantly dryer air into the state for at least the next couple of days.  Keim says most of Louisiana can expect lows in the upper 60's and highs in the upper 80's to near 90 degrees for the next couple of days.

"This is not a big drop in the temperature, but we're going to see a significant drop in the humidity and these temperatures we're going to experience, both morning and afternoon, are going to feel so much better with that dryer air in place."

Keim says the humidity drop will make temperatures feel much more comfortable.  He says these dryer conditions could linger across the state for the next three or four days.  But Keim says we're gradually going to rebound into some warmer temperatures.

"So we're definitely moving into that time we call 'Swing Season', as we swing back and forth between summer-like conditions and then we'll get a little surge of relief that'll last for a few days."
