Friday Morning: Chilly and breezy today; Winter is here to stay for now

Weather

Today: Cloudy to start, but clouds are expected to gradually clear later in the day as high pressure builds into the region. Breezy with winds out of the northwest between 10-15 mph. High temperatures will only be in the upper 40s to lower 50s, but it will feel much colder.

Tonight: Winds should relax a bit, allowing for temperatures to drop quickly. Mostly clear to partly cloudy. Morning temperatures in the upper 20s to lower 30s. A light freeze is possible, so be sure to protect people, pets, and plants.

Saturday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Highs will be in the lower 50s. Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 20s to lower 30s. A light to moderate freeze is possible, so be sure to protect people, pets, and plants.

Sunday: Partly to mostly cloudy on Sunday. Highs will be in the lower 50s. Rain chances return late on Sunday/Sunday night. Currently, rain chance is around 30% during the day and 60% at night, but we will need to adjust accordingly as it gets closer. We will have to watch the position of the low pressure system and the temperatures. Depending on the track of the low, this could bring wintry precipitation to portions of Louisiana. Best opportunity for that looks to be closer to I-20, but there is the potential to see some flakes or sleet pellets mixed with cold rain north of I-10/I-12. Little to no accumulations are expected at this time. Better chance for light accumulations will be in Southwest Mississippi. Stay tuned for changes!

Monday: Still the possibility for the brief transition of rain and wintry mix early Monday morning before it turns to plain cold rain – but more so north of I-10/I-12. Blustery, cold, and mostly cloudy. Highs will only be in the mid and upper 40s. Another light to moderate freeze is expected. Be sure to protect people, pets, and plants.

Tuesday: Chilly and mostly sunny. Highs in the lower 50s. Another freeze is expected. Be sure to protect people, pets, and plants. Lows near 32.

Wednesday & Thursday: Mostly sunny and cool. Temperatures will finally regulate into the upper 50s to lower 60s. More seasonal weather.
