Nicondra: Slightly drier Sunday, watching a weaker Danny

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Saturday turned out to be a pretty decent day for most, but we did have a period of heavy rain that moved through some areas during the afternoon. As we head into the evening, most of the rain is ending. Temperatures peaked in the low 90s, but areas that got in on the rain saw some rain cooled air and dropped into the 70s and 80s for the rest of the day.

Sunday looks like we will see even less coverage with only a few isolated storms. Coverage will be just around 20% with partly cloudy skies otherwise. Less rain means more locations will see temperatures climbing a degree or two higher. Expect low to mid 90s for some.

Danny was downgraded to a tropical storm Saturday evening. The storm is expected to continue to the west north west with a more western path late Saturday into Sunday. With dry air moving into the storm and wind shear distorting the pattern we are expecting an even weaker system to move into the islands as a tropical storm possibly becoming a remnant low before the end of next week. 

Two additional waves are moving off the coast of Africa. The environment for development is favorable. It is the time of year we expect to see the most tropical develop with the statistical peak of hurricane season September 10th.
