New Orleans Weather: Near-record highs Wednesday

Tropical Depression Imelda continues to slowly move across the Houston area today with heavy rain. It is forecast to continue to crawl to the north the next few days. Flooding rains are expected with rain totals around 6-12+ inches possible. Back here in New Orleans, we will have another hot day with only a few showers and storms popping up from Imelda's outer rain bands. High temperatures will be near records in the mid 90s. The record at the airport in Kenner is 97° set back in 2018.
