Tied a record high at the Airport [ Local Stories]

Record high was tied at the Airport Friday with a high of 98. Last hit 98 on this date in 1995.

Low chance tropical development for a disorganized area of rain in the NE Gulf and across Florida. If you look carefully you will notice a bit of a spin over North Florida. The rain is moving NE 5-10 mph. It's a 10% chance development in 48 hours and 20% in 3-5 days with the greatest chance of development along the coast of South Carolina or North Carolina. There is some potential for flash flooding over parts of Florida.

Our rain chances increase next week. It will not be as hot, so that will be nice for a change. Highs will be closer to 90 instead of the upper 90s.

6 places to stay during Southern Decadence - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


Southern Decadence is fast approaching, and if you haven’t booked a room yet for New Orleans’ biggest LGBTQ event...well, you should probably get on that. Events include street parties, a walking parade at 2 p.m. Sunday, September 1, and a free outdoor concert at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, August 31 at the intersection of Bourbon and St. Ann streets. But all of Labor Day weekend will be a rainbow-drenched, see-and-be-seen extravaganza.

“The most important thing for attendees to consider is location to all the excitement,” said Mark Wilson, general manager of Bourbon Orleans Hotel (the event’s official hotel sponsor).

Whether you’d like to spend the weekend in the epicenter of the festivities or you’d prefer a little more breathing room, there’s a spot for you. Here are six time-tested places to stay for Southern Decadence.

High pressure is in the Gulf, and warm moist air will be flowing onshore. There is plenty of moisture in the air, so the potential for that locally heavy rain.

The Mississippi River is dropping. Now 10.6 feet. The Mississippi River at New Orleans has been at 11 feet or above for 292 days. The flood fight will officially end Wednesday.

Did your property taxes skyrocket last month? Here’s how to appeal - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


The deadline to file a formal appeal is 4 p.m. Thursday, August 22.

Last month, many local homeowners saw a steep increase in their property tax assessment. For some, it skyrocketed by more than 100 percent. That’s partly because property values have increased 18 percent across New Orleans, according to reporting from The New Orleans Advocate.

Homeowners who wish to review and discuss their taxable assessment may do so through Monday, August 18. Elderly (age 65 or older), disabled, or low-income homeowners may apply for a property tax “freeze” through Thursday, August 22.

“You should see me because you think the value placed on your property is inaccurate due to estimations on its size, comparable sales or market values,” Orleans Parish Assessor Erroll G.Williams said in a statement. “You do not dispute the property assessment because you think your taxes are too high. That is a discussion to take up with the taxing authorities.”

To dispute an assessment, file an online appeal form. The deadline to file is 4 p.m. Thursday, August 22.

You can also visit one of three offices for an informal appeal. Those locations are at City Hall (fourth floor, 1300 Perdido Street), Algiers Courthouse (first floor, 225 Morgan Street), or a temporary office at Lakeview Christian Center (second floor, 5885 Fleur De Lis Drive).

People who are applying for a freeze can fill out an application online and bring it to one of those three office locations.

Where To Eat and Drink Near the Superdome - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Corbis via Getty Images

Banh mi tacos, double burgers, and roast beef debris-topped mac and cheese

No one’s saying that the ‘Dome dog and an order of chili cheese fries don’t make for a filling snack during a game, but sometimes a fan needs more. For those times, here are some places within a mile or less of the Superdome. A few stay open late for celebrating (or drinking to forget) after the game. Some offer hearty pub grub, while others jump a step above the usual burgers and wings. Every spot is a winner.

Locally heavy rain possible in storms [ Local Stories]

NOAA updated the Hurricane Seasonal Forecast saying an above average season is now more likely.
An average hurricane season has 12 storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes.
NOAA is forecasting 10-17 named storms, 5-9 hurricanes and 2-4 major hurricanes.
The forecast includes Andrea and Barry that happened earlier this year.
The reason for an above average season: El Nino is no longer in effect. El Nino causes the strong upper level winds that can tear apart a tropical system. The Atlantic sea surface temperatures are running 1/2 degree above average. Warm water is the fuel for tropical systems. The West African Monsoon is active. This time of the year we watch areas of disturbed weather moving off of Africa. Easterly waves are the seeds for tropical development over the warm water. August, September and October are the most active months for Hurricane Season.

Hot and Humid [ Local Stories]

NOAA is out with the updated hurricane season forecast, and the potential for an above average season. The forecast is for 10-17 storms, 5-9 hurricanes and 2-4 intense. The forecast does include Andrea and Barry. The reasoning for the above average season is that El Nino has died. El Nino is the warm water in the tropical Pacific. It causes strong upper level winds that can prevent tropical development. Water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic are running 1/2 degree above average. Warm water is the fuel for tropical systems. The West African Monsoon is also active. This time of the year waves moving off the Coast of Africa are more likely to develop. We are now entering the most active time period for tropical systems.
