NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - It’s the rain we really need, and for the next few days many of us are going to get in on some of that stormy weather.

Sunday features high rain chances as we settle into a much more active weather pattern. A boundary will shift into the area later today, which should activate widespread storms across the area. The slow-moving nature of the storm activity makes periods of heavy rainfall likely. The extra clouds and eventual rain will hold highs down into the 80s.

There does seem to be a break in the wet weather coming late Monday and lingering into Tuesday as this first storm system drifts east of us.

It doesn’t last long, as another front progresses into the area by the middle of next week. This will lead to widespread storms again Wednesday into Thursday. Some of these storms will have the potential to produce heavy rainfall. I’m still holding out hope this front clears us by Friday, setting the stage for lower humidity and sunny skies to start Memorial Day weekend.
