Nicondra: Warm and muggy conditions stick around, but a fall front in the distance

Wednesday Night weather

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - It was another pleasant, but warm day with highs bouncing into the mid and upper 80s. A few spots were close to the 90 degree mark under blue sky with plenty of puffy fair weather clouds. Plenty of moisture will stick around and we could even see a few showers begin to develop over the next few afternoons.

A weak front will push in during the day on Saturday taking humidity down a smidge, but it won’t have much impact on the temperatures with most areas still seeing highs in the 80s. Overnight lows will only fall into the low 70s and upper 60s.

Late Tuesday into Wednesday it looks like we will finally see some of the colder air building to our north make a move. A dip in the jet stream could finally push another front with good feel air our way. It’s a ways out, but as we get later in the season it will get easier for fronts to head our way.

Epsilon rapidly intensified into a category 3 hurricane Wednesday afternoon making it the fourth major hurricane of the 2020 season. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for Bermuda. An area of low pressure in the northern Caribbean still bears watching with a low chance for tropical development. If it did develop it would likely push to the east.
