Unlike Tuesday, expect afternoon shower and storm coverage to back off into the isolated category. About 30% of the area will experience a pop-up shower. That means many locations in South Louisiana and Southern Mississippi will keep it dry today. Skies will be partly sunny with a humid high in the low 90s.
The overnight hours will be muggy under mostly clear skies. Lows will be in the mid 70s.
