Excessive heat warning remains in effect through Monday

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The upper high looks to continue dominating the area, meaning little change for our weather.

Afternoon temperatures will be in the mid and upper 90s with a few triple digits.

High dew points will allow the heat index to reach 110-115 degrees Monday, prompting the National Weather Service to issue an Excessive Heat Warning.

Use common sense if outside for any length of time.

Perhaps a cooling shower tomorrow? That's what a couple of models are hinting at, but don't expect more than about 30 percent coverage.

It will be dry and hot through the rest of the week, but perhaps not as brutal as the upper high will break down.
