New Orleans expects a Weather Alert Day warning of excessive heat

New Orleans expects the extreme heat to continue throughout the week

More extreme heat warnings and weather alert days are expected

The shooting will take place in the next few days and hopefully it will happen. But let’s check in with meteorologist Devon Lucey and Devin, what’s the air like right now? You’ve been talking about this all day and the impact this fire and this smoke is having on air quality. It all really depends on the direction of the wind and where it is coming from. A lot of that changes as the day goes on, as we warm up, enjoy the lake breeze, and the Gulf breeze. But for the better part of the day, we had, shall we say, moderate, somewhat yellowish air quality. Therefore, these people are very sensitive. Need caution. We’re now in the good category, but I think we’re down to that fair category but again here tomorrow. So this will be something worth watching. But a lot of this is car exhaust and this is not in the smoke plume where it can actually decompose really quickly. If this is true, if you smell smoke, it’s not good. Head inside, real-time temperatures, we’re looking at 90 degrees now. Lakefront is a lot of 80s. We feel like we’re 99 here in New Orleans, and we feel like 104 back in Lakefront. We may feel that the temperature will never drop below 100 degrees at night in some areas of the city, and we have more of that heat to come. Take a look at the record warmth here compared to the records representing record forecast temperatures, the AKERS records. We expect to get close to the record. Again, we may not get to 100. Get pretty close. We expect records to be broken Thursday through Friday. So we don’t stop here. The heat continues. What I want to do is take you into the heat bubble as we look at it, over 77,000 feet in the air. If you look at this in three dimensions, it’s like a wave of heat right above us. And that’s not going anywhere soon. That’s why you may have heard this referred to as a heat dome. It’s actually just a big dome of heat and it’s been projected right on top of us. There is no rest tomorrow morning to start here. Wednesday morning, upper 70s, North Shore, some upper 70s, lots of 80s south. I mean there could be some storms tomorrow. Let’s accept a roughly 30% chance of widely scattered storms. But again, it’s a temporary relief that brings temperatures down. But if you’re lucky enough to get some rain, you won’t be so lucky to have extremely high humidity after it’s gone. So it’s kind of a give and take there. It’s a plus or minus. If you get comfortable, the humidity will come next, as it can feel hot at temperatures near 100 like 112 113, 114 115. Another warning for overheating. We have issued another weather alert day. We got through that and we will continue the rest of the week. Mariners should watch out for some storms, especially during the morning and overnight hours as well. Tidal range beginning of the decade. Then we turn to Thursday’s forecast and call it a 20% chance of an isolated storm. Temperatures are still high. I still think we have a chance of getting to 100. Again, this is the actual air temperature always taken in the shade. You are in the sun. It’s worse than that. And you’ll get a heat indicator that can make you feel above shade temperature or even hotter. There are some forecasts that want to move forward a little bit, and bring in some storms this weekend, maybe we’ll beat this heat enough. Heat dome and lower temperatures. There are other forecasts you want to keep just as hot. We will at least continue the heat alerts through the weekend. We’ll see him next week. A very quick scan of the tropics. There was one system we tracked all the way last week, which came off the coast of Africa once, and had a high probability of becoming something. Now, there’s a very low chance that you’ll do anything at all. This was very good news for us. High pressure has kept things out of the Atlantic. If they are developing in a dome of high pressure over the United States, they will help maintain temperatures or help keep systems southward if they have the right orientation. So, whether the alert days are going to continue closer to 100 days, if we don’t get to 100 days, we’re pretty close to Saturday and we’re still thinking, even as we get into next week, we’re looking at the weather impact

New Orleans expects the extreme heat to continue throughout the week

More extreme heat warnings and weather alert days are expected

The extreme and dangerous heat will continue through the rest of the week as actual high temperatures will be near 100 degrees but will feel as hot as 113 at times. This means that extreme heat warnings are expected to continue through the rest of the week which will trigger WDSU Weather Alert Days. Some temperatures may not drop much below 80 degrees tonight, and that may also mean the heat index may not drop much below 100 degrees okay. Morning lows will only drop to the mid 70s to upper 70s along the North Shore, and 70s to mid 80s over the South Shore. Wednesday will be just like Monday and Tuesday with actual high temperatures near 100 and a heat index of 113 or hotter at times. This means we are under another Excessive Heat Warning from 10am to 7pm triggering a Weather Alert Day at WDSU. Some isolated storms are likely, which could bring a temporary easing of the heat but could mean more oppressive humidity after the storm is over. Thursday is another day in the middle of this heat wave, and it could be the hottest day for everyone in Southeast Louisiana as the core of the heat is right above us. The dangerous heat will continue until the end of the week. Our only hope of “breaking” this heat may come from a few rounds of storms over the weekend and into next week that could drop high temperatures a few degrees to keep us under extreme heat warning standards and heat advisories, but we expect at least continued warnings. Heat by Sunday and into next week as well. This means we will release WDSU weather impact days next. Here’s your seven-day forecast:
