David: Rain possible overnight

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A weak cold front will bring a chance for rain overnight tonight but we're also watching a stronger storm for the weekend.

Scattered showers are likely overnight as a weak front approaches the area. There is a small chance for a strong storm mainly north of the lake. The rain will be mostly gone before 6 a.m. tomorrow.

Clouds will gradually give way to sun on Thursday, and highs will reach the low to mid-80s. Friday and Saturday will feature the warmest weather so far this year with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

A southerly breeze will begin to crank up again on Friday evening, and we'll be downright windy over the weekend. The winds will be strong enough to possibly cause some interference with outdoor activities. Stay tuned for possible advisories or warnings later this week regarding the wind.

In addition, there could be a few stray storms on Saturday, but the best chance for widespread storms this week will come on Sunday. There is the possibility of strong to severe storms during the afternoon and evening hours. The Sunday storms could be significant for all or parts of our region so stay tuned for further updates.

Drier and slightly cooler air arrives for the beginning of next week.
