NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - There is no heat relief in sight over the next 4-5 days. Highs each afternoon will top out in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees with tons of sunshine in the forecast. Dry skies will continue through the weekend as Dorian continues to wrap dry air into our area.
Parts of Southeast Louisiana have are included in a Heat advisory for today. Feels-like temperatures will range from 105-110 degrees.
The tropics are active which is to be expected as we approach the peak of hurricane season on September 10th. Hurricane Dorian continues to move north with a turn to the northeast as it scrapes the Carolinas today. The storm has been downgraded again to a category 2. Far out in the Atlantic we are watching Tropical Storm Gabrielle which will move over the open Atlantic and possibly strengthen into a hurricane. This is of no worry to any land areas. Another disturbance about to move off the coast of Africa has a chance of development, but this is still a week away from the Caribbean IF it even makes it there.
