It will be warm and muggy in the New Orleans area as parades begin.

"Mostly cloudy skies for the rest of the evening and night, we may still see a few stray showers" said WWL-TV meteorologist Chris Franklin. "Mild, muggy, overnight lows in the 60s."

Showers and storms are expected Saturday, but not until more in the afternoon and early evening, Chris tells us.
