NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - It’s here: June 1st on the calendar starts the 2022 hurricane season.

As of now, any development late this week and into the weekend in the southeast Gulf likely will stay well south of us. If there is any development, or a sloppy first named storm Alex forms, the impacts of heavy rain will move into west and south Florida.

Our summer pattern is settling in for early June with a few showers or storms each day and temperatures around 90 degrees. The heat index will be as high as 100 degrees at times.

A weak front will move into our area Friday and increase storm chances a bit. On the back side of any Gulf tropical circulation, it will bring in drier air for the weekend and early next week, limiting any chance for rain. Temperatures will remain hot, in the lower-to-middle 90s well inland.
