NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Dry and unseasonably warm weather is in the forecast as we kick off the first weekend of fall.
All of Southeast Louisiana and South Mississippi are experiencing extreme or exceptional drought conditions. Unfortunately, it will likely get worse in the coming days and weeks with no significant rain
Afternoon temperatures will continue to top out in the 89-92 range over the next few days. High pressure building across the area will provide generally calm conditions for the next week with little to no rain in the forecast.
In the tropics, Tropical Storm Ophelia is set to make landfall in North Carolina overnight. The National Hurricane Center is also watching a tropical wave way out in the Atlantic that has a high chance of development. This will be worth watching over the next week, but there is currently no threat to the Gulf Coast in the near future.
