The passed few days have been about as refreshing as you will see in August, it's been hot but the break from humidity has made a big difference.
Dry air never does well in this climate, however, and it will not be sticking around for the weekend.
Humidity will be building back up Saturday which means the heat index will starting pushing the triple digits once again.
Areas along the coast in particular will notice an increase in humidity Friday night, and those heading out to the Shrimp Festival in Delcambre should be prepared to drink a lot of water.
Showers have been noticably absent over the last few days, but scattered storms will be back in the forecast Saturday afternoon.
A ridge of high pressure is building in the Gulf of Mexico and putting us on the western flank of the ridge.
This will mean predominantly southerly winds which will keep humidity high and scattered showers present for the foreseeable future.
Very little change is expected through the extended forecast so buckle up because the summer weather doldrums are back, and this time they're here to stay.
