No, it's not just you. It's been scorching hot recently in south Louisiana.

The high Monday at New Orleans' Armstrong International Airport on Monday was 95, breaking the day's record high of 91 set in 1991. According to National Weather Service records it was the second-hottest day in May since record keeping at the airport began in 1946. It was also the earliest in May that 95 degrees has been recorded.

In Baton Rouge, the high Monday was 94, falling short of the record of 100 set in 1992.

The average high for mid-May in south Louisiana is in the mid-80s.

Highs are forecast to be in the low 90s the rest of the week, paving the way for more record heat. Chances of rain range from 20-30 percent.
