StormTracker Team Forecast…A mild and muggy start to Friday will lead to a warm and humid afternoon before a cold front sweeps through overnight/Saturday morning. Ahead of the front, scattered showers will develop this afternoon and then numerous showers and storms can be expected later tonight. A line of showers and storms, along or just ahead of the cold front, will move in overnight and early Saturday morning. A strong storm or two cannot be ruled out. The severe weather threat is marginal. A Marginal Risk (threat level 1 out of 5) has been issued for part of the area. A storm or two may produce damaging wind or a brief, weak tornado. Confidence is low at this time. By daybreak on Saturday, rain will be tapering from west to east. Skies will gradually clear in wake of the front.
If you’re headed out to tailgate during the morning, a rain jacket may be necessary, but only through the mid-morning hours. By the afternoon, temperatures will be sitting in the 60s and skies will be clearing. You will need the jackets for the game against Arkansas. Kickoff temperatures will be in the 50s. Geaux Tigers!
Sunday and Monday will be mostly sunny and seasonal/near-seasonal. Highs will be in the mid 60s on Sunday and upper 60s to lower 70s on Monday. Rain chances are on the rise once again starting on Tuesday. We will have to monitor the potential for severe weather. Stay tuned! ‘
Thanksgiving will be mild with highs in the 70s and there is a 30% chance for showers.
