NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A second wave of rain will move across the area later this evening and into the early morning hours on Saturday. That means the parades that aren't postponed will likely have rain. There could be a few storms near the coast. Severe weather isn't expected but downpours in spots are possible.
Rain will end overnight leaving us dry for the rest of the weekend. Plan for warm afternoons and mild evenings. Highs will reach the mid to upper 70s under mostly sunny skies.
Our next big storm will begin to affect the area on Monday. Most of the day should be dry but a line of storms will be possible as early as late afternoon. Timing will change over the weekend so check in often for updates. Locally heavy rain is possible Monday night and into Tuesday. The low pressure will move away on Wednesday.
Looking ahead to the end of next week, it appears Thursday and Friday should be dry with warm temperatures.
