Rain chances are on the rise.

"It looks like we will have some soggy weather this week thanks to an active weather pattern," WWL-TV Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum forecasts. "A series of cold front will get close to us all week, but none of them are expected to move through."

He explains that the fronts are expected to fall apart just north of us, but they will be close enough to bring an increased chance for rain/storms all week. 

"Thanks to plenty of Gulf moisture over us, some of the rain could be heavy at times. You will need to watch out for street flooding each day."

Nussbaum says the good news is that the rain will keep high temps down from the record setting heat last week."Daily high temperatures will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s before the storms develop."

Here is his detailed forecast:

MONDAY:

Sun/cloud mix, hot and humid with a 60% chance for showers and thunderstorms. Heavy rain possible. Highs around 90. Wind SE 5-10 mph.
