Incredible Humidity!

October 7, 2009

This is getting silly! It feels more like mid-July than early October. Temperatures leapt into the middle 90s yesterday. Couple that with dewpoints in the upper 70s to near 80 and we had a heat index value that hit 107 degrees! That is heat advisory territory, and something we typically don’t see in October. Improvement is on the way, but there still are a couple of nastily humid days on the way.

Wednesday: Disgusting! Highs will be a little lower due to added cloud cover. I’ll go mid to upper 80s today, but if the sun breaks completely through, we could easily see the lower 90s. I doubt we’ll see as much sun today. Wind will be from the southeast at 5-10 mph. There is a 50% chance for a shower or thunderstorm today.

Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy and humid. Lows will be in the middle 70s. There is a 30% chance for a shower.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance for a shower or thunderstorm. Highs will be in the upper 80s.

Thursday Night: Mostly cloudy and still silly humid. Lows will be in the middle 70s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy with a 70% chance for thunderstorms. Highs will be in the lower 80s.

Saturday through Tuesday: At long last, the humidity will slip away. Lows will range from the middle 50s to the lower 60s throughout the period, with highs in the middle to upper 70s each day. The front will be slow to clear the area, so I’ll leave a 50% chance for rain in on Saturday. This chance will be much higher as you head to the southeast. It will be a close call in Baton Rouge Saturday Night. Right now I’m leaning toward a wet game, and a very high chance of some wet tailgating. I’ll keep you posted. After that rain chances dip into the 10-20% range which is barely worth a mention!
