NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

More hot and sunny days are expected with temperatures climbing into the upper 90s. It will feel even hotter thanks to some humidity.

Overnight, lows will fall into the 70s on both sides of the lake. 

We'll stay dry Saturday and most of Sunday. A couple of stray storms can't be ruled out though as we head into Sunday afternoon.

Heat Index values will likely reach the triple digits each afternoon. Take heat precautions. Drink water, wear light colored clothing, sunscreen and hats.

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

    Today's work was much lighter between the Saints and Chargers was much lighter. They wore no pads only shells and helmets, and they only practiced two hours instead of two and a half like Thursday.
