FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Temperatures to be in the 90s by noon

(WAFF) -

Heat will be the big weather story this week.  We’re looking at possible First Alert Weather Days in the late week as highs push close to 100° with the heat index Thursday and Friday likely to top 105°.

Monday, we’re starting out with low-to-mid 70s under clear skies. There could be a few foggy spots, but any fog should lift by 8 to 9 a.m.  Look for plenty of sunshine otherwise allowing for a quick warm-up. Temperatures should be near 90° at Noon with highs into the mid 90s. The heat index Monday should be around 100°. 

An isolated storm is possible with the afternoon heat, but there will be many that stay dry. Although storms won’t be very widespread, any storm that does form could become strong with gusty winds, small hail, frequent lightning, and heavy rain. Any storms will fade away Monday evening and temperatures should drop into the low to mid 70s overnight.

Tuesday will be similar with a slightly higher chance for afternoon storms. That being said, chances still remain low overall. The heat continues to build on Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and afternoon heat indices pushing into the lower 100s. The dangerous heat arrives to end the work week.

    New Orleans sits atop an ancient barrier island

    To the casual observer, this looks like any other section of marsh. However, this spot in extreme Eastern New Orleans-- almost at the St. Tammany Parish line-- is unique.
