Franklin: Heat is a major concern this week

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Sunday was the hottest day so far at the Airport with 95 degrees recorded in the afternoon.

That sends the heat index into the triple digits!

Heat will be the big concern this week as the ridge of high pressure will remain dominate across the southern and central states through the weekend.

There's always a chance for a pop-up shower or thunderstorm, but coverage will remain below 10 percent.
