Drier air brings major cool-down: Watch FOX 8 Morning Edition

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The New Orleans area will see unseasonable temperatures.

Already dew points have fallen and are likely to fall further Tuesday and Wednesday.

There will be a much better feel to the air for late August! The drier air will allow overnight lows and morning temperatures to drop into the 60s and low 70s with highs in the upper 80s to near 90.

It looks as though this pleasant weather will stick around through the week and start to turn more humid over the weekend. Plenty of sunshine is in store this week with no rain.

In the tropics, Tropical Storm Erika has formed and is approaching the Lesser Antilles.

Forecast models and the NHC forecast take the storm toward or a little north of Puerto Rico Friday and the Turks and Caicos by this Saturday.

A turn east of Florida looks likely, but it’s still too soon to know for certain. We'll keep an eye on the storm and bring you the latest.
