Bruce: A dry and hot start to the week

Bruce: A dry and hot start to the week

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Over the weekend we had a few spotty storms that brought heat relief in some areas.

Those that saw rain saw temperatures drop a good 10-15 degrees. Those that did not saw temperatures hover in the mid 90s throughout the daytime hours.

Monday through Wednesday, the upper high that has brought hot and dry weather most of July will move back in from the west and that means sinking air that will make it difficult for any showers to develop.

Without the showers and clouds, temperatures are expected to soar once again.

Look for partly cloudy skies and temperatures starting out in the upper 70s to lower 80s in coastal areas warming into the middle and upper 90s again for the afternoon.

Use full heat precautions taking breaks if you have to work outdoors and drinking plenty of hydrating fluids.
