NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - It's a nice, but hot weekend across the area with most locations meeting and exceeding our long term average of 90 degrees at Armstrong International. The Audubon Park gauge reported a high of 96 for Saturday afternoon. Very little rain and plenty of sun means we will continue to see similar conditions for Father's Day.
High pressure remains in control leaving us with only isolated showers. The isolated storms will help cool those locations, but most of us stay dry and can expect highs to once again top 90. If you have big outdoor plans for Dad you should be good in the rain department, but make sure everyone stays hydrated and use sun block.
Monday is our best shot at more widespread rain as we will be wedged between two high pressure systems where there will be a better chance for a sea breeze to allow some convection to break through. By Wednesday the high will be firmly in place once again and we can expect a dry stretch with very hot temperatures at least in the middle 90's.
