NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A cold front will move close to us late tonight and early Friday morning. There will be a chance for storms into Friday morning as the front stalls near Southeast Louisiana. Some of the storms late Thursday night and early Friday morning could be severe. Skies will likely clear by Friday afternoon with a breezy and hot west wind pushing temperatures to around 90 degrees.

A heat wave will develop over the weekend. Temperatures this weekend will reach 90 degrees or hotter. Some areas could be as hot as the middle 90s bringing record heat for early May.

It stays hot for the early part of next week with no rain and temperatures near record levels in the lower to mid 90s. The next chance for storms may not come until the end of next week and even that looks like low chances.
