Saturday: Rain coverage will likely be maximized early Saturday morning as the center of circulation passes over Lake Pontchartrain. Expect breezy conditions with winds shifting westerly at 10-15mph. Beyond dawn, scattered showers remain in the forecast but a washout is not anticipated. There should be plenty of breaks in the rain and even times of sun. High temperatures will top out in the mid 80s.
Sunday: Like Saturday, Father's Day will not be a total washout but more showers and thunderstorms will be around. With a tropical air mass still in place, any thunderstorms could bring downpours. With some breaks of sun available, high temperatures will likely return to the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.
