2:30PM Weather: Cozy forecast for your Friday with an increasing rain threat!


New Orleans’ forecast for early Friday morning includes rain in front of yet another low pressure system. Today we were dealing with above normal, Spring-like temperatures, but chillier air comes back to town by your weekend.

By late Thursday afternoon, rain chances will start to increase in parishes north of I-10/I-12.

On radar, expect our storm threat at daybreak. Right now, no severe elements are area-wide concerns.

This is a Marginal Risk (Level 1 out of 4) for localized heavy rainfall across Northshore locations.

Anticipate an overall precipitation total between one and two inches beyond Lake Pontchartrain into south Mississippi.

Conditions improve once that system progresses east, then the cooler air filters through. At that point, highs reach upper 50s – low 60s!
