NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Your Wednesday has been a nice dry but hot day. Some changes come tomorrow as a boundary drops into the area brining in a few strong spotty storms and downpours from 3pm through 8pm. Tomorrow a first alert day with these storm moving through evening rush hour. Expect about 60 percent coverage late in the day Thursday. Dry conditions take over again through the weekend. A few spots could see an isolated storm, but most will stay dry.

In the tropics Lee continues to push west. It is expected to strengthen to a strong major hurricane. The current track keeps the strongest impacts north of the Caribbean islands. We will continue to monitor the storm in the Fox 8 Weather Center, but there is no threat to the Gulf at this time.
