Bob: Keep umbrellas handy, rain increases this week

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Today saw a few more showers develop during daytime heating. That trend will last for the rest of the week as tropical moisture deepens and the upper-level high shifts back over the Southwest.

Any storms that form will be slow movers, so expect heavy rainfall locally in a few neighborhoods. Coverage will gradually increase during the rest of this week so keep the umbrellas handy.

The Tropics remain quiet on day 8 of this hurricane season.
