A Category 3 hurricane in the Pacific Ocean is bearing down on Mexico, and will eventually bring rain to New Orleans.

"Hurricane Willa in the Pacific will move into Mexico and across Mexico and Texas," said Channel 4 Chief Meteorologist Carl Arredondo. "The remnants of it and the moisture will move across our area on Thursday and bring us a high chance for rain."

It's most likely to influence our weather on Thursday. The chance of rain will be 100 percent.
