Sun and heat are on tap for the Independence Day Festival on Wednesday at Shreveport's Festival Plaza.
Temperatures on Wednesday are expected to soar well into the upper 90s, but high temperatures may not reach the 100 degree mark.
More moisture in the air will allow for some cloud development that should hold temperatures slightly below the century mark. A high of 97 degrees is forecast for Shreveport.
A ridge of high pressure that has kept the ArkLaTex very sunny and hot will weaken slightly by the start of next week, allowing a very slim chance of isolated showers and storms by midweek.
If you're heading to the Independence Day Festival at Shreveport's Festival Plaza on Wednesday, you'll want to remember to take precautions to protect yourself from the heat.
Remember to wear sunscreen, wear sunglasses and a hat. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, and dress in cool, loose, light-colored clothing. Try to stay in the shade and take breaks in an air conditioned building if you feel the heat.
