With a possibility of severe weather in the forecast Sunday, many weekend events have been canceled or announced time changes.

Come first thing Sunday morning, rain showers are likely to move in from the west with a few embedded thunderstorms possible.

As the front swings through the area by late morning into the early afternoon hours, a spotty strong to severe storm is not out of the question. Any stronger storm will be capable of brief, heavy downpours and gusty winds.

Unlike last weekend, the severe threat with this system is much lower as the Storm Prediction Center has only outlined the area in a marginal risk which is the lowest threat level. Once the front clears the rain out by the later afternoon hours on Sunday, I wouldn't be surprised to see some peeks of sun return to the forecast.

Here is a list of events that have announced cancellations or time changes:

  • Super Sunday in St. Bernard and the Parade of Homes delayed until 2 p.m.
  • The NOLA Navy Cook Off La. Seafood Challenge has moved to Manning’s, 519 Fulton St, 2nd floor

  • Celebration: The Power of Play at the Children's Museum of St. Tammany canceled 

  • NOLA Tricentennial Dog Parade canceled

  • Lafreniere Park Earth Day Celebration canceled
