NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - We ended up with a spectacular Sunday after a record week of rain at Armstrong International Airport ended Saturday night. The National Weather Service confirms that this week's 10 day stretch of measurable rain was the longest for April since record keeping began at the site in 1947. Even though there was brilliant sunshine and a very pleasant day for Sunday there is a slim chance that stretch could be extended to 11 days. We still have very moist air in place and the actual cold front is bringing severe storms to Central and North Louisiana.
There is an opportunity for another storm or two late through the overnight with the frontal passage. Behind the front we will solidify the drier air for a couple of days and look for sunny and pleasant weather until our next chance for rain moves in late Wednesday. Always looking ahead to the weekend we will see another rainy period starting then into Friday. That's not what we would like to have with another huge outdoor weekend coming up so while Friday may not be the greatest it does look like Saturday and Sunday will clear up for some of the Jazz Fest and Zurich Classic.
