Record Heat Continues in Shreveport-Bossier
Our high temperature could climb close to a record today.
Accuweather meteorologists tell us we could hit 103 late this afternoon. That would match the old record which was set last year. This has been a hot week. Thursday, we hit 101. That was close to the record of 102 we set in 1990. We've hit triple digits over the past 4 days. Our average temperature for the first week of September ranges from 85-90. We will be much hotter than that throughout the weekend. Expect highs in the triple digits on Saturday and Sunday. The chance of rain is very slim.
