NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - More storms in the forecast as we head into the afternoon. Heavy rain with lighting pushed in early this morning for some areas north of the lake. On the south shore, storms are just beginning to take hold. Most storms will push through the metro area by 4 p.m. with the severe weather threat pushing south and east through Plaquemines and St. Bernard during the early evening. By late this evening all but the coastal regions should start to dry up.
The entire area is under a Slight Risk for severe storms, with the main threats being heavy rain, lightning, and damaging winds. An isolated hail storm or tornado cannot be ruled out.
Sunday looks much nicer with partly cloudy skies and dry conditions! High temperatures will reach the low 80s. Early next week could feature a few showers or storms, but the next best chance for rain will come Thursday with the potential for a few strong storms.
