There is a threat for a few strong to severe thunderstorms Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon.

A huge range in weather conditions across the area this afternoon.

Sunday should see rain throughout the day with some sun poking out in the morning, with temperatures peaking in the 60s, forecasters said.

Storms also could lead to power outages and downed trees, according to the weather service.

The city's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is monitoring the weather and is in close communication with the National Weather Service, the New Orleans Police Department and the French Quarter Festival, which began Thursday and continues through Sunday. Clouds will be on the increase as temperatures will go from near 70 into the lower 60s by early Sunday morning.

Showers with thunderstorms are forecast after 3 p.m. Sunday.
