Bruce: Heat and humidity return

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The nice-feeling air we enjoyed last week is long gone as the feel of summer returns to end the month of August.

Expect to see mostly sunny skies, with only a stray shower possible. High temps will be in the 90s all week with overnight lows in the mid-70s. We'll likely only see a slight increase in rain chances by the end of the week and weekend - around 30%.

Erika dissipated on Saturday morning and is no longer a threat at all. What's left is producing some rain over Florida.

Hurricane Fred is in the far eastern Atlantic, near the coast of Africa and the Cape Verde Islands. Dissipation in the open water is likely as he move to the west-northwest.
