As we launch into seven straight days of parades, rain figures in the forecast for several of them.

"A cold front is stalled along the coast today. It will keep us cloudy with scattered showers and a few storms during the afternoon," said WWL-TV meteorologist Dave Nussbaum. "This evening will be cloudy with a slight chance for a shower during the parades."

The front starts pushing through the area tomorrow, bringing a 90 percent chance of rain. A chance of scattered showers will remain during the evening parade hours.

Friday through Sunday should be clear, with a chance of rain on Lundi and Mardi Gras, but possibly avoiding parade times.
