A hot last day for a hot September

Posted at 8:06 AM, Sep 30, 2019

It was another hot weekend here in Acadiana with temperatures returning to the 90s in the afternoon, and humidity increasing to go along with it.

The final day of September will wrap up the way it started, with temperatures well above normal both during the afternoon and overnight.

A quick glance at some of the numbers and this September is shaping up to be one of the three hottest on record, with everyday except for two posting numbers above average.

While it's easy to feel the heat in the afternoon, it's actually been the overnight lows that have been the furthest below normal, outside of a few nights our lows have consistently stayed in the 70s (normally we'd be seeing mid 60s regularly).

This hot pattern doesn't look like it'll break anytime soon either with the first week and a half, at least, of October posting temperatures running well above average.

The rest of this week highs will be in the 90s and moisture will stay high meaning the heat index will continuously get up into the mid 90s.

That push of moisture will result in a few possible showers through the afternoon, and while most will be staying dry a pop up shower isn't out of the question.

As has been the case for seemingly weeks now there are hints that a cold front may be on the way for the second week of October.
