Summer storms make a return

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - It’s the last relatively dry day of this hot, humid and hazy summer stretch we have experienced this week. Highs are expected to top out in the middle 90s this afternoon with only an isolated storm possible.

Rain coverage really begins to increase for Friday on into the weekend as the ridge of high pressure parked over us begins to weaken. The good news with the increasing rain coverage is highs will fall back to our usual summer normal of around 90. More rain will also nudge the Saharan dust out of the area which will act to eliminate that hazy glow in the sky.

All remains quiet in the tropics.
