(WVUE) -

After a mild start, temperatures will warm into the 70s this afternoon. Moisture will begin to increase this afternoon and evening when southeasterly winds take over.

Most will not see rain today, but isolated sprinkles will be possible throughout today and tonight. Cloud cover will increase overnight keeping temperatures in the 60s overnight on both sides of the lake.

The better chance for rain and storms will arrive Wednesday afternoon through Thursday evening. There is a risk for severe storms and heavy downpours both days.

Some rain could linger into Friday, but drier, cooler weather is expected by Saturday.

Sunday, we will see a mix of sun and clouds. At this time, we can't rule out a shower or two south of Lake Pontchartrain and along the coast Sunday afternoon.

Dry conditions are expected to start next week.
