Some heavy rainfall and locally strong thunderstorms are likely in New Orleans this morning.
Showers and a few thunderstorms that affected Texas and western Louisiana Monday night will push into New Orleans this morning and bring locally heavy rain.
Storms could wake some folks up early today.
The main threats from these storms will be blinding downpours and localized flooding in urban areas. However, some thunderstorms could contain damaging winds and hail, especially to the north and west of New Orleans.
The thunderstorms are being caused by a combination of a cold front approaching from the north and a moist, southerly flow of air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico.
Any showers and thunderstorms should wrap up by the midday hours. In the front's wake, it will be a bit cooler and less humid Tuesday night and Wednesday.
