NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - We had a pretty nice break in the rain with several dry and sunny days, but we are already feeling the change. Humidity is on the rise with southeasterly winds bringing back the gulf moisture.
Wednesday still offered plenty of sunshine with highs in the low 80s this afternoon. We have been watching an upper low developing a storm complex to our north west. The storms will move into the area early Thursday morning during the overnight hours from Wednesday into Thursday triggering a Low or as the Storm Prediction Center labels calls for a Marginal risk for severe weather. It does not look like we will see widespread coverage or torrential rains like we dealt with last week, but we may see some thunderstorm cells reaching the severe criteria.
Right now it appears the rain will move through during the wee hours of the morning into late morning and early afternoon Thursday. Most showers should end by late afternoon. We will continue to see a chance for rain on Friday and Saturday, but it's not all bad. It doesn't look like either day will be a washout, but there is an opportunity for scattered showers or T-storms.
