NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Sunshine is projected for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival's final weekend, which returns Thursday through Sunday.

That's good news for fest-goers, who saw rain force a partial closure Sunday. More rain hit the Fair Grounds Race Course on Wednesday, so organizers suggest fans prepare for a muddy Thursday, the start of the festival's second weekend.

Artists on tap this weekend include Stevie Wonder, whose performance was canceled last year because of rain, Darrius Rucker, Earth, Wind & Fire, Wilco, Snoop Dogg and the Kings of Leon.
