Zack: Humidity returns, along with storm chances later this week
Highs will touch 80 on Monday with more moisture from a southerly breeze
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - All good things must come to an end, and that will be the case with this beautiful stretch of weather to which we’ve lately been treated.
It’s back to work on Monday and back to humidity. More humid conditions and increasing southerly winds will be felt as highs climb near 80 under a good bit of cloud cover. There is a small chance for a stray shower or two, especially more inland, but I’m keeping rain coverage at about 20 percent.
Same story, different day heading into Tuesday, as a bit more storm activity will be possible over the western half of the state. Most of that will likely stay west of us, but it’s a sign of things to come later in the week. The big storm day of the work week looks to be Wednesday with a good bit of that activity lingering into the nighttime hours. A severe weather event likely will transpire just to our north through the day and then that mess migrates into our region by night. This will be a slow-moving front, so periods of heavy rain will be possible as it tracks across our area.
This front won’t do much for us, as a slight drop in temperatures is noted late in the week, but the warmth and humidity return quickly for next weekend. We could have some rain chances to contend with then as well.
