NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A somewhat drier trend is likely for late week and possibly into the start of the weekend. That means just the normal spotty afternoon storms. It also means it will be a bit hotter with the heat indices again peaking above 100 degrees.

A tropical wave will approach the area by Sunday and early next week bringing another increase in rain chances. At this time significant development of the wave is not expected. Showers and storms will increase in coverage with daily downpours lasting into early next week.

There are a couple of other tropical waves in the far Eastern Atlantic. Development, if any, is not expected over the weekend.
