Bob: The heat continues...

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Historically, the last week in July and the first 10 days of August are the hottest days of the year.

We have flirted with record heat but are coming up just a few degrees short. Still, the daily heat index tops 105+ for many hours, requiring us to pay attention and use common sense regarding heat precautions.

We will see little change for the next several days unless we can get some tropical moisture in from the Gulf. There is an elongated area of low pressure that stretches from the central Gulf back NE to off the Georgia coast. Strong upper winds will make any development very slow. Plus, we have a blocking upper high over us that is steering most of the moisture well off our coast.

That upper high may shift by the end of this week.

    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
