NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - It stays extra hot on Thursday with a few late day storms. Deeper moisture moves in on Friday and that means storms will develop earlier in the day and be more widespread. There is an above average chance of getting wet each day into the weekend. Some of the rain could produce heavy downpours with some street flooding at times. While it’s hard to say if any one day will be washout, most areas should expect some rain at various points throughout the day.
Early next week is no different. Above normal rain chances continue into Tuesday. By the middle and end of next week hot high pressure will build in and rain chances will dramatically drop.
The tropics are quiet.
