Saturday through Monday highs will climb into the upper 80s with feel like temperatures pushing the mid to upper 90s under a mix of sun and clouds with a 20-30% chance for an isolated shower each afternoon.
Today will start mild and mostly cloudy with scattered outbreaks of rain in places. Temperatures will remain in the 60s with a southerly breeze at 10-15 miles per hour.
Both Sunday and Monday remain as "Alert Days".
As we head into Tuesday a cold front will be dropping from the northwest.
On Wednesday, severe storms are will be possible yet again. Most of the rain should push east of the D.C. area by noon, with some scattered showers possible through the early afternoon.
New Orleans Thursday weather: Mostly cloudy with chance of thunderstorms
We stay mostly cloudy for Tuesday with a lower, but still slight, chance of showers and a few rumbles of thunder.
Clouds will increase this evening ahead of a few showers that move in overnight tonight. Periods of rain are likely on Thursday with lingering showers continuing into Friday.
Tuesday we are looking at another round of moderate to heavy showers during the first half of the day which could produce an additional 1-3 inches of rain leading to more minor flooding concerns.
This time of year, wind direction is a big factor as ocean temperatures are in the upper 50s. With partly sunny skies, the air aloft will support low-80s near the ground; we are projecting a high of around 81 inland, but 70s at the beaches, where the sea breeze will cool things off. Winds will turn southerly on Saturday into Sunday and then southeasterly on Memorial Day. We will keep a watch all this week regarding this weekend's weather.
