NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - It has been a beautiful week, but like most of the Summer and early Fall it has been way too hot. Chief Meteorologist David Bernard says a bit of a break is on the way in the form of a weak cool front. Northerly winds will build into the area on Saturday with much lower humidity.
Temperatures will return to more typical levels in the lower 80s for Sunday and the rest of next week. It looks dry with no rain in the forecast for the next seven days.
Overnight lows will be in the 50s to around 60 north and west of the Lake. In the city expect mostly 60s and lower 70s.
Hurricane Matthew will continue to hug the coast of the Southeastern United States this weekend. Storm surge flooding and rainfall flooding will be the biggest threats from Georgia to North Carolina. Matthew is expected to move out to sea and loop south, but weakening or even dissipating at the same time.
