Your Weather Authority: Mainly dry with a few spotty storms

(WVUE) -

Expect many dry hours today with a few spotty storms this afternoon.

There could be a couple of brief downpours. Temperatures will rise to the mid-90s for those that do not see rain. Heat precautions should be taken by anyone working outside (frequent breaks inside and a lot of water). Some spots will feel like the triple digits.

This pattern will continue through Saturday, then rain chances will increase on Sunday.

Most north shore rivers are slowly getting back into their banks, but the Amite River will continue to cause backwater flooding in surrounding areas stretching as far as northern St. James & St. John parishes.

In the tropics, Tropical Storm, Fiona, the sixth named storm of the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane season, formed on Wednesday.

As it moves west-northwest, it is likely to get swept up by a trough and pulled out to sea.

A second disturbance off Africa in the far Eastern Atlantic has a low chance for development.

Regardless, both are far out to sea and not a concern for southeast Louisiana at this time
