More Heat Advisories Likely After Saturday [ Local Stories]

Right now Sunday is looking even hotter than Friday and Saturday. Highs look to climb into the mid to upper 90s over much of the area. An isolated afternoon storm possible. The heat continues into Monday and Tuesday with similar temperatures. The combination of the heat and the humidity will cause a heat index of 105-112+.

Take breaks from the heat, hydrate and check the back seat. Pay attention to how you feel. If dizzy, nauseous or faint, go inside and cool down. Make sure pets have all day shade and fresh water. Avoid running with pets during the hot time of the day on the hot pavement. If working outside, try to work early morning and evening. We will stay in the low to mid 90s even at 7pm at night.

Tropical Storm Fay made landfall near Atlantic City, NJ. The storm is diminishing in intensity. Max winds at last report were 45 mph. Fay is expected to dissipate by Sunday

After a Year of Pop-Ups, Port Orleans Brings in NY-Based Taco Joint for New Restaurant - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Port Orleans has a new restaurant, Avo Taco | Brasted/Eater NOLA

Avo Taco is now open in the Uptown brewery, long known for its food

More than a year after parting ways with its acclaimed kitchen Stokehold, popular Uptown brewery Port Orleans is shaking up its food offerings with a new permanent restaurant, Avo Taco. The brewery’s partnership with the New York restaurant follows a successful weekend of pop-ups it held at Port Orleans last summer.

Port Orleans Brewing Co., which counts former New Orleans Saint Zach Strief as an investor and co-owner, debuted in 2017 as a brewery with an equal emphasis on food. The kitchen was Stokehold, which offered a beer and food pairing menu created by former High Hat chef Jeremy Wolgamott and Phillip Mariano, who previously cooked at Josephine Estelle. Despite local and national praise, at some point in the last two years the brewery and kitchen parted ways, after which Port Orleans intermittently hosted pop-ups and guest chefs.

A weekend of pop-ups with Avo Taco last June was apparently particularly successful, eventually leading to discussions of a second location for the Long Island restaurant. Avo Taco partner David Hersh lived in New Orleans for many years, which may help explain the far-reaching interest. A news release says the new location has hired “nearly” 10 full and part-time employees from New Orleans, including local restaurant vet Dylan Stafford as general manager.

The Port Orleans’ Avo Taco is serving 12 kinds of “artisanal” tacos, specialty guacamole, street corn, burgers, quesadillas, and kid-friendly options, and offers takeout and catering. It’s open daily at 11 a.m., closing at 7 p.m. on Monday, 8 p.m. on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, 5 p.m. on Thursday, and 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Hotter Weekend [ Local Stories]

The National Hurricane Center is saying an area of low pressure near the South Carolina and Georgia border has a 50% chance tropical development in 3-5 days. There is potential that it will move along the North Carolina Coast and possibly into the warm water allowing it to develop. Forecast models indicate it moving NE along the East Coast.

Dr. Phil Klotzbach is out with the updated Hurricane Season Forecast. He has increased the activity for this year, and now says this season will be very active. He is forecasting 20 named storms, 9 become hurricanes and 4 become major hurricanes. We have already had 5 storms this year. The most active time period is August, September and October. The reason for the increase in activity is that we will not have an El Nino this year. It will be a neutral year or a weak La Nina Year. That means we will not have the strong upper level winds to help prevent tropical development. We also have warm Tropical Water in the Atlantic Basin, and an active West African Monsoon.

Rain chances go up in afternoon [ Local Stories]

A weak front is stalled nearby, and will act as a focus for more rain. Some areas have had heavy rain recently, so the ground is saturated. Any additional rain over those same areas mean the potential for flash flooding. Keep an eye to the sky.

40% chance tropical development for an area of low pressure over Central Georgia. It is forecast to move NE towards the Carolina Coast. Some models indicate it hugs the coast moving North. Something to monitor, but no impact for our area.

Keep an eye to the sky! [ Local Stories]

Weak front will stall in the area and act as a focus for rain and storms as we heat up. It will not be an all day rain, but we will have storms. The concern is that we could once more have locally heavy rain in storms. Expect gusty winds in storms. Check the radar before you go out on a boat. Winds may gust to 50 mph. You do not want to be caught out on the water in these storms. There will also be a lot of lighting.

Rain chances will stay high through Monday. The ground is becoming saturated. Additional rain will run off quickly, which means flash flooding will be possible.

Full Thunder Moon is 11:44 pm. We also have a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. The Moon will move into the outer shadow of the Earth. You will only be able to see a faint shadow on the Moon. The best time to look is at 11:29 PM. The only problem is that the weather may not cooperate. We may still have mostly cloudy skies...
