NEW ORLEANS — WWL-TV Meteorologist Alexandra Cranford

Some showers and storms spread over us on Monday from a weak disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico.

The associated clouds and rain helped with the heat, which most of us probably appreciated! Temperatures were in the 80s or even 70s where there was rain. 

Tuesday could once again bring a few showers, so we'll keep the rain chance about 30%. 

Then after that, the rest of the week looks quite hot and humid as high pressure returns.

In the tropics, Hurricane Humberto is strengthening and will keep moving out over the Atlantic. Another wave called Invest 97 in the central Atlantic could soon become Tropical Storm Imelda. Models right now keep it away from the US.
