Warmer Weekend

Meteorologist Chris Franklin looks at the warmer weekend and chance for rain on Monday.

Chris Franklin - WWL-TV Meteorologist

An upper low has triggered some showers across the area this morning. Most of that rain will be gone by late this afternoon and evening as the low moves farther east. Fog could be an issue late tonight/early tomorrow with mostly dry weather and highs climbing into the low 70s for Sunday! Fog again Monday morning with highs again in the low 70s before a cold front moves through. Showers and some thunderstorms during the day Monday with a Marginal Risk (low end) for some severe storms. Behind the front, more seasonal temps with lows in the 30s and 40s...but above freezing...and afternoon highs in the low 60s.
