NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - It looks mostly sunny and hot and no rain is expected through Friday. Temperatures will be around 90 degrees all week with many spots into the lower to even mid 90s well inland. The heat index will approach 100 degrees by midday.

A cold front will approach the Gulf Coast by the weekend and could stall for a few days. At the same a plume of tropical moisture will move in from the Gulf of Mexico. Storm chances return by Saturday. Sunday looks extra stormy with heavy downpours possible. The chance for storms sticks around into early next week as the early summer pattern locks in.
