NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - It looks like we won’t get a beat from the heat any time soon as high temperatures will rise to at or near 100° through at least Friday.

The center of the high shrunk north to south but has elongated east to west. As a result, the dry sinking hot air will continue as storms and best rain chances stay to our northeast. a Highs reached the 100 degree mark both Saturday and Sunday. Monday afternoon is likely to make the mark as well. That would be the first time three days in a row of 100 degree temperatures would be recorded at MSY (airport in Kenner) which began record keeping in 1946. The Audubon gage has recorded 4 days consecutively at 100 degrees in 2015, 2007 and 1924 each time in the month of August. This trend is expected to continue for at least the next week and a half.

For now there are no tropical concerns.
