New Orleans weather and 7 day forecast
Good evening on Monday! The forecast for late July in New Orleans and southeast Louisiana is warmer with humidity and fewer storms keeping temperatures warm compared to normal July trends. It looks like conditions are now beyond triple digits after a heat advisory was issued again in the WGNO viewing area until 7pm. Afternoon highs will hit the upper 90s, but overnight on both sides of Lake Pontchartrain expect 70s. On Saturday we tied a 1981 record 98 degrees at MSY. Again today we tied the July 26, 1981 record of 96 at MSY.
Tonight and much of the week to come, we may see additional chances of patchy rain! 40% or 50% chance remains the theme. Tomorrow, however, showers for a brief relief will be harder to find.
Most chances of rain are daytime heating during the hottest part of your afternoon after lunch.
Open waters currently remain calm with minimal gulf development potential until next week, so good news there! We are, however, keeping a close eye on an area of low pressure near the Florida coast for training potential. The chances of development are minimal and local impacts are not a concern!
