Thursday means weekend entertainment picks with our partners at WWL-TV — but first, WWL-TV meteorologist Derek Kevra tells you what the weather will be like while you're out doing all those things:
"Most of the time, when a 5K run is planned in the summer, I tend to think, "Why?". But this weekend's race, the Happy's Irish Pub NOLA 5K, is helping raise money for Team Gleason... and there ain't no questioning that. Runners should, however, plan for some evening showers and storms. In fact, Friday - Sunday all look like that: scattered storms with highs near 90. Pack rain gear, but no white flags."
