Wednesday storms provide some relief from the heat

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

We're watching the tropics as we get closer to August. The Pacific is still very active, while the Atlantic is much quieter. However, the National Hurricane Center is following a cluster of storms just off the African coast that could slowly develop over the next three to five days.

It is so far out, we have no need to watch it yet.

Closer to home, we continue to see showers and storms all along a left over frontal boundary from the central Gulf across Florida out into the Atlantic. There is a small swirl of clouds east of Jacksonville that may slowly develop, but wind shear appears to be to strong right now. The upper high that has kept us dry is slowly weakening and drifting back to the west. That is allowing some storms to rotate around it, bringing us some relief from the heat.

Hopefully more storms will return for tomorrow afternoon.
