The cold front will move closer to New Orleans tonight. This will help to set off scattered showers and thunderstorms. Any of these could also be strong to severe. It will be a warm and muggy night with lows in the lower 70s.
Another round of showers and storms are likely on Tuesday until the cold front passes through. These storms could also be strong to possibly severe. SPC has all of SE LA in a Slight Risk for severe weather. The storms could have damaging winds, hail and a few tornadoes. We will stay warm and humid with highs in the mid 80s. Some showers will linger into Tuesday Night with lows in the lower 60s.
We will start to dry out on Wednesday with only a slight chance (20%) for a shower along the coast. It will turn cooler with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s.
More mainly dry weather is in the forecast for Thursday and Friday with just a 10% chance for a shower. It will stay mild with highs in the mid 70s and lows in the 50s. Needless to say it will be some nice refreshing weather for South Louisiana to start May!
