Shelby: Summer heat in full force
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Mobile user? Watch the latest FOX 8 broadcast here. You can also see our DVR option.
As a more stable air mass builds into the area, we will be mostly dry and extra hot through the weekend. Highs will reach the mid-90s in spots, and the heat index will top out near 105 degrees in the afternoons. Be sure to drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks from the heat.
Rain chances will be near zero through Monday with only a very stray, brief storm possible. If it happens, it would probably be near the coast. Most will stay totally dry through the weekend.
A few storms will sneak back into the picture by the middle of next week and help shave a degree or two off the thermometer.
The tropics are quiet and development is not expected for at least the next five days.
