NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - One more hot, humid day on tap for southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi through Thursday. Highs will climb into the upper 80's near 90 once again with another shot at breaking records. Wednesday is the third-consecutive day of record highs. We hit 91 breaking the record of 89 in 1993.
The good news is that the cold front is moving towards the area as Thursday rolls on. Look for the front to arrive overnight Thursday with the real fall feel coming during the early morning on Friday. It will be much cooler and breezy during the day with Friday night football really feeling like football weather.
The cool and crisp, Autumn feel will last through the weekend with highs in the 70's. Lows will dip to the 40's on the North Shore and 50's on the South Shore.
In the tropics, there is a disturbance in the Bahamas that has a high chance for development in the next five days. We do not expect impacts along the Gulf Coast, and models are keeping whatever forms well off the eastern seaboard thanks to the same front bringing us cooler conditions this weekend.
