Heavy rains are on the way

By  | 

MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Today is going to be another hot once, with daytime highs reaching the mid 90's and the feels-like temperatures reaching 100 degrees. We may see some popup showers/thunderstorms this afternoon to provide some slight relief from the heat in some areas. Starting Wednesday, we are going to see a fairly wet pattern through much of Friday and possible parts of Saturday. Widespread rainfall can be expected, with projected totals through Friday reaching 2 to possibly 5 inches of rain in some locations. The good news is that our daytime highs over those few days will struggle to reach 90.
