Franklin: Sunny skies, cooler air lingers through Saturday

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

An upper trough pushing deep into the south has brought dry air from far north and it looks to hang around through Friday and even into Saturday. Humidity begins to make a return by Sunday.

We will see sunny skies for the next several days with an increase in clouds and perhaps a few showers by next week.

Erika remains a tropical storm as it approaches the extreme northeastern Caribbean Sea. Models remain torn on the forecasted strength of the storm as well as the eventual path.

The National Hurricane Center keeps a general NW track toward southern Florida, then a turn more northward as a hurricane before reaching Miami. There is still plenty of uncertainty.
