Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: A warm front will continue to lift to the north, which will set the stage for storms today and tonight. Showers and storms will be possible at times. Some storms could be strong to severe. Rain chance is around 70% for now, but more so later in the day. Highs will be in the mid and upper 70s.

Tonight: Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Areas of fog.

Saturday: A cold front will pass through the area and stall out to the south in the Gulf. Meanwhile, an approaching upper level low will trigger showers and storms at times, but more so late in the day and Saturday night. We will have to watch for isolated flash flooding. A surface low will develop along the aforementioned cold front in the Gulf. High near 68. Overnight temperature near 58.

Sunday: The surface low will begin to track across south Louisiana. Also, the upper level low and the front and surface low will mean we could have a severe weather threat. We will have to watch to see how far north the surface low travels. This will determine our severe weather threat on Sunday. Rainfall totals through the weekend look to be 3-6″ with locally higher amounts. A cold front will pass through the region and temperatures will tumble. We will hit our high early in the day before temperatures drop. Afternoon temperatures may be in the 50s. Winds will pick up, as well. Overnight temperatures near 40.

Monday: Much colder and breezy. Sunny skies, but the wind will make it feel much colder. High near 53. Overnight temperatures will drop into the low and mid 30s. First freeze of the season for some areas. Overnight temperature near 30.

Tuesday: Cold and sunny. High near 54. Overnight temperatures near 34.

Wednesday & Thursday: A cold front will move in, which will trigger showers and storms. Highs near 60. Overnight temperatures in the 30s & 40s.
