NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A strong disturbance brings our next chance of rain by Friday and Saturday. The Gulf breezes will bring back the clouds and the humidity early Friday but most of the rain will likely hold off until Friday evening and night. There could be a few strong to severe storms Friday night into early Saturday.

Rain chances drop fast on Saturday as a warm to almost hot west wind takes over ahead of a cold front. Temperatures may soar into the middle 80s by the afternoon hours. A few stray storms could still pop up during the afternoon.

Dry air and low humidity will return for the end of the weekend and beginning of next week. However this next cold front will not bring cooler temperatures. Highs will remain in the 80s.
