Zack: Rain likely through this evening

Minor street flooding is possible as passing downpours move through the area.

Zack: Saturday Morning Forecast

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A change is coming in this weather pattern but we have another 6-12 hours of stormy weather to get through.

Rain will be consistent for the rest of your Saturday as batches of rain move in from the Gulf. This will lead to periods of heavy rainfall so minor street flooding is possible at times. The additional clouds and rain are keeping us a bit on the cool as our temperatures will remain stuck in the 60s.

Not only will the rest of today be wet but even into tonight, rain is likely. This is all in response to a final disturbance passing along the stalled front. Once this disturbance clears us come Sunday morning, our flip to drier weather will begin. Sunday we could hold on to a shower at the coast but in general the second half of the weekend will be much drier. Clouds are likely to stick around although a few sunny peeks will be possible by afternoon.

Next week’s weather is looking absolutely fabulous as multiple days of sunshine and comfortable temperatures roll in. Highs through the week will be in the 70s with lows in the 40s and 50s. The low humidity and sunny skies will make for a stretch of A+ weather, we earned it!
