NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - Tons of sun and low humidity will stick around into Saturday. It will be hot but it will be a “dry heat.” A tropical disturbance (not Dorian) will move across the Gulf this weekend. The northern fringes will bring a round of showers and storms by Sunday and to some extent on Monday as well. It won’t be a washout on Sunday but expect some passing storms from time to time. The storm coverage looks more spotty on Labor Day itself.
More dry air will move into the area for the middle and end of next week bringing more sunshine and relatively lower humidity for this time of the year.
Dorian is forecast to impact the Florida Peninsula as early as Sunday. It could linger for a few days as it stalls out. At this time, the Florida beaches in the Panhandle should not be impacted. Stay with FOX 8 for any changes to the forecast next week.
