Bruce: Temperatures on the rise this weekend

Bruce: Thursday evening forecast

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Another hot and sunny day is expected Friday with temperatures climbing into the low-to-middle 90s. It will feel even hotter thanks to some humidity.

Lows over the next few nights will fall into the 70s on both sides of the lake.

A couple of stray storms can't be ruled out later in the weekend, but most areas will stay dry.

Temperatures will be on the rise and so will the humidity. Heat Index values will likely reach the triple digits each afternoon.

Plan for some more unsettled weather during the early and middle parts of next week with a few more storms around.
