Gorgeous Weather Through the Weekend

The first full-day of Fall lived up to its name!

NEW ORLEANS — Absolutely gorgeous today! Sunny skies, low humidity, and high temperatures remaining in the 70s through the afternoon. We may get a few degrees cooler tonight as winds are more settled. Lower 50s North and upper 50s to low/mid 60s south. Beautiful Friday under sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s. The weekend looks gorgeous with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s, but humidity remains low. We'll continue a gradual warm up into next week with highs in the upper 80s, which is average for this time of year, and a bit more humid. It's possible we are done with 90s for the season!

Eye on the Tropics:

Sam is the only named storm currently, well east of the Lesser Antilles. Models indicate it will become a major hurricane but that it will also remain north of the islands and possibly avoid land-interaction all together! Elsewhere, no threats to the Gulf or Caribbean.
