It’s the first day of October, no seriously, it may not look like it glancing at the forecast but it is in fact the first day of October.

The last time we were below 70 degrees was May 23, that morning we were at 69 degrees, and after that summer set in for good.

If you were under the belief that since it’s now October, than you are mistaken, no front has been able to hold together long enough to break the summer pattern that has had a firm grip on Louisiana.

Warm, muggy conditions will persist through the remainder of the week with highs averaging in the upper 80s/low 90s, and a heat index that consistently sits in the 90s.

It won’t start to feel much better in the mornings either, with lows remaining fairly consistently in the mid 70s lows will be a solid 10 degrees warmer than average for this time of year.

Rain chances will remain around the 40% range, and the rule of daily pop up showers will remain in effect through at least the weekend.

A glance at the extended forecast unfortunately doesn’t have much difference coming up anytime soon, so that elusive first front will in fact remain elusive.
