Good evening on this Sunday! The forecast for July 25th across New Orleans and southeast Louisiana was hotter, with humidity and fewer storms keeping temperatures high in comparison on July’s normal trends. Feels like conditions are now beyond triple digits after a heat advisory is issued across parts of our area and north once again. This remained in effect until 7PM with another Monday from 10AM-7PM.
Afternoon highs reached the 90s but overnight, over both sides of Lake Pontchartrain, expect 70s. Yesterday, we tied a record high set back in 1981 of 98 degrees at MSY.
Throughout much of the coming week, there’s the chance we see additional scattered rain chances! 40% or 50% chances remain the theme beyond tomorrow.
Most rain chances are daytime heating driven throughout the hottest part of your afternoon after lunch.
Open waters currently stay quiet with minimal Gulf development potential into next week, so some great news there! We are, however keeping a close eye on one area of low pressure near Florida’s coast for formation potential. Models are all over the place, but our only local impact would be increased rain chances next week, if anything!
More information on WGNO.com will be available tomorrow, plus you can join in during Good Morning New Orleans!
