Zack: A gloomy, wet end to the week

Off and on rain showers can be expected through the day on your Friday.

FORECAST: Fri., Jan. 22 - A gloomy, wet end to the week

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The end of the work week will bring with it the worst weather of the week as rain looks likely for much of your Friday forecast.

Off and on rain showers can be expected for this morning’s commute as a weak front slides across the area. Now this front will act to hold our temperatures in the 60s today so it will be a cool and damp day to go along with the rain. I do believe by this afternoon the most consistent showers will transition offshore with just lingering sprinkles remaining around the area.

This front really won’t do much to better our weather for the upcoming weekend. In fact, it will stall right along the coast and move back north as a warm front late Saturday. That means more shower chances can be expected for Saturday as we remain on the cool side of the front with highs topping out right around 60.

Sunday will certainly be the better half of the weekend as a warm breeze blows in from the Gulf. This will send our highs well into the 70s and hopefully we can manage a little bit of sun to filter through the clouds. The really good news - rain chances do leave us for at least one day!

Come early next week it’s back to multiple days of rain potential. Timing these weak systems out days in advance is close to impossible but as of now, rain will come and ago until maybe a stronger front arrives by Thursday.
