Few showers and storms remain possible Wednesday afternoon

Most of the rain will remain south of the lake and closer to the coast through Wednesday afternoon.

NEW ORLEANS — The heaviest rain is now moving south of the New Orleans metro and will continue to slowly advance towards the coast. Scattered showers and t-storms remain possible through the afternoon, but for the most part the heaviest of the rain will remain mostly south of New Orleans. If you live down along the coast the chance for storms will linger into the evening.

By Wednesday night we begin to dry out. The coast will be the last to dry out, but by Thursday we'll have mostly sunny skies and a north wind pushing in dry air. 

Friday and Saturday will start nice in the 50s and 60s and the afternoons will be sunny, warm in the low to mid 80s, but humidity will be low.

By Sunday we'll see humidity return along with a stray shower or two, but don't expect huge problems for Mother's Day. 

We stay warm and humid through the beginning of next week with the chance for showers and storms.
