NEW ORLEANS — WWL-TV Meteorologist Chris Franklin

A bit more cloud cover looks to be moving in today along with some mainly coastal and offshore showers and storms. This should keep our temperatures from record territory, but still too hot for this time of year and in the low 90s. Clouds and coastal storms are still thanks to an upper low in the Gulf. The NHC is still highlighting an area of possible development in the Gulf, however they have dropped it to 20%, from 30% yesterday, and the clearly-defined 'swirl' on satellite yesterday is not showing up today. This disturbance will likely continue moving west toward Texas thanks to the blocking high over our region. 

This high will keep the area hot and mostly dry heading in to next week. Another disturbance int eh central Atlantic is being watched, but poses no threat at this time. Tropical Storm Humberto is also gaining strength as it will thankfully begin moving away from the Bahamas and the East coast this week, but toward Bermuda.
