Cool Off With 20 Of Louisiana’s Most Favorite ‘It’s So Hot’ Jokes
The heat wave that moved into Northwest Louisiana is certainly no joke!
We are over a month from the official start of summer, which doesn't begin until June 21, however we have experienced near-record high temperatures each afternoon since Sunday and according to the National Weather Service in Shreveport, that trend of near-record highs will continue through this entire week.
Near Record High Temperatures For Every Day This Week
As I continued to see our forecasted high temperatures hitting the "near record" range, my curiosity led me to do a little research on extremeweatherwatch.com, where I discovered just how close we are to setting new records for this time of year.
For example, the record high for today's date, May 10, is 91.9. Our forecasted high for today is 93, so it's likely we should surpass that. And the rest of the week is basically the same story, especially on Thursday and Friday.
Keeping that in mind, we should obviously remember to observe all the warnings issued in regards to dangerous heat. The National Weather Service reminds us that heat can be a killer and that there are several things we should do to combat the effects of the heat.
- Wear light-weight clothing
- Limit strenuous outdoor activities
- Drink plenty of water
- Avoid too much sun
But then, of course, we're here in Louisiana and for most of us, this kind of heat isn't our first rodeo. So how do we handle it? We laugh about it!
