The station that gets you through hurricanes and everyday storms and the news talk and sports leader -- big 871053. WW LF and WWL dot com. How does your salary stacks up coming up in just a moment I'll do the math and say what the average in Louisiana and New Orleans salaries are compared to the national average and it's. I can't tell you this in its final surprise. Not as much as people are making and the rest of the country but is it worth it to live here anyway. And I dailies she gets a beautiful -- weather made viva directed the -- over whether senator good morning. I -- meteorologist Laura but now apple T day not Monday no it's not and it's not gonna be as hot today. Hopefully -- I guess we were in the mid ninety's yesterday even some triple digits on the North -- so hopefully with some more cloud cover and rain today we won't be as high. Yeah I was so looking at the temperatures around 10:30 yesterday morning. Several spots around here heat index is already over 100. And they did get cloudy a little rain yesterday afternoon but yet it was late too little too late it was like already ridiculously high. I know well and Andy that's that's the case I mean the -- I think keeping the heat away it's just that hopefully. With more showers and storms around it it kind of blocked the sunshine you don't get quite as hot but it's not like -- a cold front or anything move and so. You take away the clouds the -- you're gonna be hot no matter what. All right so how hot will we be today is how much has a chance to see and that. Hi that 93 today in about a 50% chance for -- showers and storms so what happened was we'll see rain half won't. All right that's kind of the way we shape up for the rest of the way it really is get -- much of a change 50% again tomorrow. 60% Thursday and Friday that about a 50% chance over the weekend so better than average rain chances all the -- through the week. I'm always just had the hottest June ever recorded in the Louisiana right the driest first six months of the year ever recorded right so maybe were kind of going did get more normal man. No well hopefully to be honest a lot of our wet weather that kind of equals out our rain for the year comes from tropical systems you don't have a tropical system you don't get that rainfall. A lot of times -- behind for the year so. Now wasn't that on this desolate no one had you know wants it asked for tropical system that just explains why you look at our deficit and go why are we so tried. It really comes word on want to -- -- hurricane exactly and then boom. Not another I got out there right now things quiet so we don't have to worry about -- tropics fit any time scenes allowing maybe -- for another driest month of the hottest month. No -- not -- It's her days. Wonderful also you know we don't make much money living here. Now has new Bureau of Labor Statistics at showing the average -- -- and makes about nineteen dollars and 72 cents an hour on average which works -- about 41 grand a year for the average in count okay nationally it's over 44000. So we take a hit by living here but is it worth. It anyway. Well consulate -- then a little lower and well but eventually -- about living as far as your your home is actually pretty hikes -- the comparison insurance really New York in Miami -- -- some the only places that the cost of living is higher than New Orleans and that crazy. And so okay so we don't get a break now thanks -- insurance. Right and high pressure and that is mortgages and all that go -- up. So why don't we that there is because I love it says the outta. The blue collar shirt and you -- What I mean all just stop the French Quarter Nacional that's wonderful that's it and -- there and now NASA weather now. And into the world of the ledger we can -- had a baby baby for three months that the year yesterday. The weather's better here than most places during the winter they go thank you in February and that needed to nurture remarks about sabathia best months we got around and it will be about 95 degrees until January as it doesn't look forward to -- exactly thanks Laura have a good morning. -- -- down -- and right from the channel four -- I'm now on WW. Pork is another reason it's worth it to make less money to live here raising gala absolutely it has the this definitely one of the best sports town in the next day as well we better have football. Ask you this is hopeful essentially we have to have -- put on the -- Felt about that tells about the home run derby dozen other details this morning sports already. -- what his father on the -- New York Yankees second baseman Robinson pro crushed 32 home runs beating Boston Adrian Gonzales for Major League baseball's home run title. Who -- father Jose says he was more than happy to cause people to his -- when he called me home. He wanted to come to the united state going going to be enough harm their yourself you have been pitching you because it's like going you know. Former southern star second baseman Rickie Weeks we'll start for the national lead in tonight's all star game. On the mound it'll be Philadelphia's Roy holiday starting for the NL against the American League Jered Weaver of the angels. Halladay is eleven and three with a 2.3 five ERA Weaver is eleven import and leads the majors with pay one point 86. Earned run average. The rookie pay scale has become the latest hang up to get a deal done to hold the NFL lockout. Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins is entering his third season and feels that -- first year players income is fair. I'm leaning toward the. All pro linebacker Mike Vrabel retired from the Kansas City Chiefs are returning to his alma mater as an Ohio State assistant coach. -- position was previously held by as college roommate and teammate -- fickle who has been elevated to interim coach when Jim Tressel resigned on May thirtieth. And LSU's home game against Washington in 2012. Has been moved up three weeks to September 8. The tigers were originally scheduled to play the Huskies in Tiger Stadium on September 20 ninth. However the teens mutually agreed to move to games in the second week of that sees it. Today of four on sports talk with Bobby -- -- when the NFL and NBA -- to win. Should -- be allowed to enforce conduct policy for incident that occurred during the work stoppage. Plus saints tight end David Thomas with -- early morning look at sports I'm Steve Geller. So Steve they have a self imposed deadline of Friday to come to a deal the NFL owners and players right and then hopefully -- vote by the owners the following week when they all get together and then maybe you'll have free agency will have. Training camp while I appreciate that want a full season. It's all gonna fall into line and we they've got to contingency plan they've mapped out how it's all gonna work but it's don't have a deal. None of my head start to spin from all these dates that they keep putting out I thought was they were saying the fifteenth. To have a full season now they're saying well they could squeeze it in the figure deal -- by the 21. Well -- me to -- and it just seems that. That we get so many different conflicting reports I don't know what to believe anymore. Aren't increased your head is spinning and -- unit you know feel on that optimistic pessimistic or anything else you just confuse. Definitely confused by all right now but I I just I truly believe though in the end. We're not gonna miss. Any any games I really believe that he can't imagine they would that would constitute much. Right exactly and -- you know training camp might be a little short in the free agency period going to be completely crazy. And I mean the saints who have you know everybody actually it is -- -- gonna put several months of free agency and a few days. Yes going to be like -- committee the game show it's gonna be so why America. Thank you Steve.
