Greater New Orleans sits in between a pair of tropical developments, with Hurricane Florence well to our east and a tropical wave head to our west.  In between, the weather looks pretty good.

"We will continue to see spotty storms today as Invest 95 sits southwest of New Orleans and the heating of the day sparks off some storms," WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum forecasts. "It will be hot with highs in the lower 90s." 

More of the same weather is expected on Friday.

"We will be between Invest 95 to our west and Florence to our east. High pressure will sit over us and that will limit the amount of storms we will see Saturday and Sunday."

Here is Nussbaum's detailed forecast...
