NEW ORLEANS (AP) - One thing north Louisiana doesn’t need is more rain. But the National Weather Service says a cold front will push through the state Friday bring showers and thunderstorms.

The weather service in Shreveport says the area can expect large hail and damaging winds during the early evening hours.

After the storms pass, colder temperatures are expected over the weekend.

The front will continue south and reach the New Orleans metro area by Saturday.

The Slidell weather office say there’s a slight risk of severe thunderstorm, primarily large hail and damaging winds. The forecast calls for an additional 1 to 3 inches of rainfall.

After the cold front passes, cooler temperatures are expected.
