Bob: Heat wave for the weekend

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

We saw a few storms around Thursday afternoon, but coverage was limited to 20-30 percent. Consequently, highs soared into the mid- to upper-90s for the 17th time this summer.

No relief is in the short term as the upper high over Texas is forecast to slide eastward over Louisiana, bringing record-breaking heat the next four to five days.

Storms will increase by mid to late week, and that should make us less hot. But until then, it’s HEAT WAVE with only a slight chance for a stray late evening storm.

Heat advisories are likely to be issued by the National Weather Service with the usual summer heat precautions.
