How do you survive the heat and humidity then? Luckily, NoDef has compiled some tips on how to beat the heat.

As we slide into September, the weather is is looking to be pretty static all week A 30-40% chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be a theme. Highs through Friday are expected to climb near 90F. However, nights will bring a reprieve with overnight lows in the upper 70's.

In 2014, New Orleans will make it through Labor Day weekend without a major tropical event. However, there will still be rain. A wet Saturday afternoon is likely with a Tropical Airmass coming through. Sunday brings slightly less cloud cover  as highs climb to round 90F. A 30% chance of a shower or thunder boomer is also in the mix.

A back door cold front coming in from the East to West today will keep rain chances up to 60% for a wet opener to the week. Rain amounts could accumulate up to 2 inches in some storms. The rest of the week will continue with the HOT theme as temps are expected rise over 90F every day for the remainder of the week.

It's still August in SoLa. So, expect another week of afternoon scattered showers and thunderstorms as we continue to see a typical mid-August pattern. Daytime highs will be around 90F with overnight lows in the mid to upper 70's. Out at sea, formations remain disorganized.

It's August in NOLA which means lots of heat, and a chance of storms, but this weekend is looking fairly tame. The southerly flow returns today as we say adios to the lower dewpoint's. A chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms are forecasted but none are expected to be severe in nature. Highs are predicted to be around 90F area wide.

Heaven is Hot!


Yup, it's hot, damn hot! For one day, be glad that you're not a professional athlete! Today, the Saints are slated to practice outside in the brutal weather, with a heat index reaching 115. NoDef will be sitting in the AC, and sipping on some frosties. God Bess You Boys!
