Hot and mostly dry rest of the week

A combination of a cold front and tropical moisture will increase weekend rain chances.

NEW ORLEANS — Weak upper ridging will lead to a hot and mostly dry rest of the week. A stray shower is possible on Friday, but coverage will be limited to less than 10% coverage. The ridge will weaken as an upper trough approaches. A weak cold front will allow for a triggering of showers and storms, especially Sunday.  More clouds and rain this weekend should keep high temps in the mid to upper 80s, which may continue into the start of next week.

Eye on the Tropics:

All remains quiet with no development expected for the next 5 days. The GFS, which had been the far more aggressive with storm development, is now coming to more agreement with the Euro and indicating no tropical development within the next 7 days. This is a far departure from what the model has been saying since last week...which is why you should never buy into what one model run is saying nearly 2 weeks out!
