NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - It almost seems like the weather is on repeat as we have made it to another weekend and there once again is a risk for severe weather.
Many areas experienced a little bit of rain overnight last night which was certainly a welcomed sight as the drought conditions continue to worsen.
Our first round of severe weather looks to move into the region through this afternoon and into the evening. A batch of storms originating offshore is moving inland with the potential to produce hail or damaging winds.
Going into Sunday a much greater risk for severe storms exist, especially to our north. In fact this may play out exactly like the Easter Sunday outbreak where storms stay predominately north of the lake on into Mississippi. Although that greater risk area will develop to our north most of the area is included in some type of risk for severe storms which includes tornadoes, damaging winds and hail.
By early next week all of this mess will be out of here and we return back to that pleasant, April feel.
