Less rain, more heat in the forecast

Categories: 

Summer officially arrives tomorrow morning, but it sure feels like it already.

"We will return to more typical summer-like weather today across Southeast Louisiana," WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum forecasts. "As the area of low pressure continues to move inland over South Texas, we will have fewer storms with more sunshine and heat today."

He says highs will climb into the lower 90s and it will feel like 95-100. 

A spotty shower or thunderstorm that does develop could produce locally heavy rain.

We get even hotter as we move closer to and into the weekend.

"High pressure will build over Louisiana on Friday and it will stay over us all weekend. This means we will be getting hotter! Expect to see plenty of sunshine Friday through Sunday with only a slight chance for a shower or storm each day. High temperatures will be in the lower 90s and it will feel like the upper 90s to lower 100s each day."

Here is Nussbaum's detailed forecast...
