NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -
Our Fourth of July weekend weather really couldn't be nicer, especially compared to the East Coast where Category 2 Hurricane Arthur has already made landfall.
The storm hit coastal North Carolina and is moving back into the Atlantic to continue along the Eastern seaboard.
Other than some passing clouds and an isolated shower or storm, this extended weekend looks nice with mostly sunny skies, slightly lower humidity, but still hot temperatures reaching the low and mid 90s.
Much of the same is expected into early next week, with slight rain chances not returning until Tuesday.
