NEW ORLEANS — WWL-TV Meteorologist Chris Franklin

The heat continued despite the more abundant rain coverage today. What helped was that locations that still climbed into the mid 90s didn’t stay there all afternoon as clouds and storms did help to moderate temperatures. Rain coverage was a bit higher today thanks to a stalled front sitting over the area. The front will likely start dissipating tomorrow and Friday. Rain chances will likely stay around 50% tomorrow then drop to about 30% Friday. High temps will likely see more widespread mid 90s to wrap up the week. More normal, 30-40%, rain chances for this weekend then an upper disturbance will increase rain chances for next week.

In the tropics, all is quiet and no development is expected for the next 5 days. Models, however, have been hinting at a disturbance in the Gulf by the middle to end of next week. There is no agreement on the strength or track of this feature, but it is something worth keeping an eye on through this weekend and as we begin next week. We are creeping closer to the peak of the season and more development is certainly expected.
