HOT, hot, hot! A Heat Advisory is issued until 7PM Friday!


Good afternoon on this Friday! The forecast for July 23rd across New Orleans and southeast Louisiana is 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 our area.

Afternoon highs will reach the 90s but overnight, over both sides of Lake Pontchartrain, expect 70s.

Tomorrow, again, there’s the chance we see additional scattered rain chances! 30% or 20% chances remain the theme.

Into your weekend, we see that previously unsettled pattern flip with low pressure moving away, then the ridge taking over!

Open waters currently stay quiet with minimal Gulf development potential into next week, so some great news there!

Stay tuned as more information throughout articles plus each newscast will be available all day today! Catch us live during WGNO News at 5PM, 6PM and 10PM!
