NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Fewer storms are expected on Wednesday. High pressure gets stronger over the area by Thursday and into the start of the weekend. That means rain chances will drop quite a bit and temperatures will reach the middle 90s with the heat index around 105 degrees in the afternoon.

A cold front will get close on Sunday and likely set off widespread showers and storms by the afternoon. Somewhat drier air may move in early next week but there will still be enough moisture for typical spotty afternoon storms.

No development is expected in the tropics for the next 5 days.
