There's a lot going on this weekend — from the Gretna Heritage Festival
to the Ponderosa Stomp
— but a tropical storm system in the Gulf is making things miiiighty
We asked WWL-TV's Derek Kevra
what he saw in the forecast for Tropical Storm Karen
It is said that the majority of Louisiana festivals take place in October, because the weather is usually quite perfect. Heck, this weekend is Gretna Fest, my friend Andrew's favorite festival of the year!
Which is why I'm troubled to announce that the forecast for this weekend includes rain and a possible tropical system. Where the tropical system goes will obviously play a large role in the forecast, but it's safe to say right now that Saturday looks fairly wet, and Friday will see some spotty rain too. A cold front Sunday will help clear things out, with spotty morning showers and cooler air Sunday night.
Be like Derek's good friend Andrew. Keep up with the weekend predictions at the WWL-TV Weather Center
