We are expecting another very hot week around Shreveport Bossier and the entire region. The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a Heat Advisory until 7pm Monday night, but this advisory will likely be extended for much of this week.
The high temperatures are expected to climb to the 100 degree mark on Monday and that temp combined with the humidity will drive the heat index temps up to somewhere between 105 and 110 degrees.
