NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Mother’s Day in New Orleans is going to be hot and dry, and this pattern will stick with us for most of the new work week.

When I say hot, I’m thinking 90-degree temperatures could be the norm over the week. It all starts Sunday for Mother’s Day, as we will likely see many locations touch 90. The only weather concerns we have for today will be keeping cool and protecting from the sun, as the sky will be mostly cloudless.

Same story, different day will be the weather pattern for most of this new work week. A ridge of high pressure will continue to linger over us, which could add a few more degrees to highs by Wednesday into Thursday.

There should be a change in the pattern by the week’s end. A weakness should develop in the high, leading to some afternoon storms and the possibility of a frontal passage next weekend. We will see.
