The heat is on with fewer showers

Categories: 

Rain chances are declining, so heat will be climbing.

"Expect a mix of sun and clouds with scattered showers and storms," WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum says. "A few storms could be strong with gusty winds and heavy rain."

Highs will be in the lower 90s, and the heat index will be 100-105+. 

Friday will see even fewer storms.

"Only spotty storms possible. That means more sun and heat with highs in the lower to mid 90s," according to Nussbaum.  "The heat index will be 100-105+."

The weekend Forecast?

"Expect plenty of sunshine on Saturday with only spotty storms possible as the upper-level high pressure stays north of Louisiana. High temperatures will stay in the lower to mid 90s. The upper-level high will move west of us on Sunday, and a trough of low pressure will send a weak front toward us from the northeast. This front will not get here, but it will be close enough to give us a better chance for some storms. Expect scattered storms with high temperatures in the lower 90s."
