Rain is expected in waves for our Friday.

"Get ready for a soggy day," WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum warned. "A cold front has stalled north of us, but it is close enough to give us a better chance for rain for the next few days."

He says we should expect scattered showers and storms to develop all day into the evening. 

"Some storms could contain heavy rain and that may lead to street flooding issues."

On the bright side, he says that the rain will help keep our high temperatures down in the upper 80s. 

"The front will stay north of us all weekend, but it will keep us pretty wet on Saturday with more heavy rain and storms."

Here is Nussbaum's detailed forecast...
