Hottest weather still to come

Thursday Evening Forecast

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) -A hot area of high pressure is building over Texas and slowly moving our way. Fewer storms will mean temperatures may max out in the middle 90s into the weekend. A few spots away from the water could see some upper 90s. The heat index will approach 108 which is a dangerous level.

Storm chances will be mostly in the afternoon and evening when they occur.

By the middle to end of next week the high may weaken a bit returning temperatures closer to normal (around 90) with a better chance for daily storms.

The tropics are quiet.
