NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A stationary frontal boundary has parked itself over southeastern Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. That means repeated chances for rain and storms over the next 24 hours until it moves out.

Storms will move through the afternoon and evening from the daytime heating. Those storms have the possibility of becoming severe although the bigger risk right now looks to be flooding. Many areas could see 1″-3″ of rainfall with locally higher amounts possible. A Flood Watch has been issued until Saturday morning.

Most of the rain looks to move out by Saturday morning so any outdoor plans may be salvageable. A spotty shower may linger but it looks to be much quieter on the radar front. Highs Saturday will warm to the low to middle 70s.

Easter Sunday will start out much cooler. If you’re headed to any sunrise services, you’ll want a jacket or sweater since the lows will bottom out in the 50s and 60s. Highs will warm only to the upper 60s later in the day under mostly cloudy skies.
