David: Flash flood watch in effect, cooler weather on the way

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

There is a Flash flood watch in effect until 7 p.m. so expect localized flooding and strong storms for the next few hours.

The rains are coming to an end later this evening. Cooler and drier weather will build in overnight. 

For the weekend it will be sunny and dry with comfy temperatures around 70 degrees. Chilly mornings with lows in the 50s. Some 40s are likely by Sunday and Monday morning. The rest of next week looks mostly sunny with a few clouds by Thursday as a weak front moves into the area. Little if any rain is expected with that system.

We will continue to monitor the heavy rain threat for the next several hours.
