Morning showers then storms likely late Wednesday

The weekend will turn colder and drier for parades.

NEW ORLEANS — Overall don't expect a very active Tuesday, but we do have a few showers this morning. However, by this afternoon I think most will be dry with temperatures in the mid 70s. A southeast breeze will begin to pull in Gulf moisture.

Tomorrow does look more active, especially the evening hours. Your Wednesday starts warmer in the 60s. The afternoon will be mild and more humid in the upper 70s. We could see a few showers and t-storms during the daytime, but most rain and storms move in late. Anywhere from 9 pm - 1 am storms will arrive with a weak cold front. A few strong storms are possible with gusty winds and an isolated tornado being the main threats. Rain totals for most will be between 1-2 inches. This cold front won't sweep through very quickly, so expect a few showers to linger Thursday.

Friday another cold front pushes in and this will clear us out but also bring colder temperatures. The even! Saturday parades also look nice, but chilly. While we will be under sunny skies, highs will only reach the upper 40s to low 50s and it'll remain breezy after a morning start near freezing North, and around 40° South.

Another chilly morning Sunday with highs in the low to mid 60s and mostly sunny. Great weekend for parades!
