David: Expect heavy rain threat tonight and Tuesday

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Low pressure will cross Southeast Louisiana over the next 24 hours. Widespread 1-3 inch rain totals are likely with some areas seeing over 5 inches of rain.

Some localized training is possible which could lead to flooding in spots. The heaviest rain will be late Monday night and into the day on Tuesday.

WATCH live VIPIR radar to see where the storm is headed.

Somewhat drier air will move in for the Fourth of July but there will still be some storms around with many dry breaks.

Fairly typical spotty storm coverage for Thursday and Friday with highs in the lower 90s. More moisture moves back into the area this weekend bringing a better chance for showers and storms again.
