A large swath of southeast Louisiana is under a slight risk of severe weather Wednesday ahead of an approaching cold front.
The National Weather Service office in Slidell says scattered to numerous severe storms are possible.
Forecasters say there is a chance for one round of storms in the afternoon, with greater confidence of a later round as the front moves through the area.
Widespread amounts of 1 to 3 inches of rain are possible with locally heavier amounts.
Behind the front, a return to seasonal temperatures are expected with afternoon highs returning to the 60s.
