David: Higher rain chances into Wednesday

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Several upper level disturbances are moving our way over the next few days to interact with deep tropical moisture that will increase rain chances through the middle of the week.

While it won't rain all day Tuesday and Wednesday there will be several wet periods and the chance for locally heavy downpours. Some street flooding is possible if someone gets stuck under one for a long period of time.

Thursday will be a transition day back to more typical scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Once we head into the weekend and early next week it looks like a typical mix of sun and storms with the normal heat and humidity.

The tropical outlook stays quiet in the Atlantic with no development expected in the next five days.
