There's a good chance the strong thunderstorms we saw Saturday afternoon could return on Sunday.

That means the possibility of more heavy rain, some downpours, lots of lightning and strong, gusty winds.

The possibility of showers and storms on Sunday is the same as it was Saturday...60 percent.

WWL-TV meteorologist Jay Gallé says a high pressure area to our east has brought lots of moisture into the atmosphere.

"Thunderstorms that form with daytime heating will have the potential to dump heavy rain quickly," says Gallé. "That could cause more street flooding in some areas, like we saw Saturday."

And, like Saturday, most rain should wrap up by Sunday evening.

"There's a good chance we'll see more scattered afternoon showers and storms on Monday and even more on Tuesday, as a summer cold front approaches," Gallé says. "That could keep rain chances fairly high through the week."
