Bruce: Partly cloudy skies, scattered storms this weekend

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Plan for partly cloudy skies and several dry, warm hours over the next couple of days with some scattered storms by late morning and into the afternoon.

There will be a couple of downpours. Temperatures will rise to the lower to mid 90s, higher for those that don't see rain! We will feel like the triple digits at times. This pattern continues through Sunday, then rain chances will increase late weekend into Monday.

Most north shore rivers are back into their banks, but the swollen Amite River will continue to cause backwater flooding in it's surrounding areas stretching as far as northern St. James & St. John parishes. We will see slow receding over the weekend.

In the tropics, our 6th Tropical Storm, Fiona is still far from us. As it moves west-northwest, it is likely to get swept up by a trough and pulled out to sea. Two more tropical waves are off the African coast right now and will be monitored for potential development next week. Regardless, both are far out to sea and not a concern for Southeast Louisiana at this time.
