Dry and beautiful weather is here for the weekend

Rain and storms hold off until next week.

NEW ORLEANS — It's a dry and warm Friday afternoon, and it's just the beginning of a stretch of beautiful weather that will last through the weekend. 

Enjoy mostly sunny skies, highs around 80° and low humidity today. 

Another cool-ish morning is coming up Saturday with 50s and 60s. Saturday afternoon will be lovely again with highs in the lower 80s.

Sunday looks really nice with jus slightly higher humidity - but it will still be a sunny and pretty day with highs in the middle 80s.

High pressure will become anchored over the East Coast next week. That will mean southeast winds nearly all of next week for the Gulf Coast. At the same time, an upper trough will park over Texas which will increase instability needed to trigger showers and storms. 

No day appears to be a wash-out at this time, but expect daily scattered showers and storms through next week.
