Morning storms, but drier by mid-afternoon

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - After a round of showers and storms Monday morning, we are likely to have several dry hours from mid-morning to just past lunch time. A few more storms will be possible this afternoon. A few of the stronger ones could produce heavy downpours and frequent lightning. The risk for severe weather is on the lower side, but one or two could be intense.

Stormy activity is possible again tomorrow with similar threats. A few heavy downpours, some lightning, and a marginal severe weather threat.

The middle of the week will feature an early summer weather pattern with a daily chance for showers or storms in the afternoon and highs in the upper 80s or near 90.

By Friday, a surge of tropical moisture is forecast to move inland from the Gulf of Mexico. This could allow for a wet and stormy pattern as we head into the weekend.
