Rain chances stick around with cool front by Friday

Showers and t-storms are possible Monday through Thursday.

NEW ORLEANS — We stay in our on and off stormy pattern through much of this week. Each day will have a chance for showers and t-storms, but the exact timing is hard to nail down in these types of setups.

One nice thing this week is that the clouds and scattered rain will keep temperatures down a little in the 80s for the afternoons. Also, the rain is mostly welcome as we've been in drought conditions for most of our area for weeks. We don't need tons of rain all at once to cause flooding issues, but in general we could use the rain, and many of us could pick up a beneficial couple of inches this week.

A weak cold front arrives Friday to make it drier and a little less humid to start the Memorial Day weekend! The rest of the weekend looks hotter and muggier but still dry.

Eye on the Tropics

The tropical disturbance that formed off the coast moved inland near Pensacola late Sunday night. It is moving toward Atlanta Monday morning. The rest of the tropics remains quiet.
