SHREVEPORT, LA - An excessive heat warning remains in effect for Shreveport and all of northwest Louisiana through 8pm Monday night. This warning also includes much of east Texas and extreme southern Arkansas.

What We Can Expect:

Temps will climb to about 104 degrees on Monday. Sunday's temp climbed to 106 which broke a record of 105 which was set back in 1948. This extreme heat and humidity will significantly increase the potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities.


Anyone who has to work outdoors in this heat is urged to take frequent breaks and stay hydrated. You are also urged to wear loose fitting light clothing if you must be outside. This heat can overcome you with little to no notice.

All residents are also encouraged to check on elderly neighbors or those living alone to make sure they are ok. You should never leave a child or a pet in a car unattended even if the car is left running. Something could go wrong and this heat is unbearable in a hot car for even a few minutes.
