Friday Night: Stormy weekend; Cooler next week

Weather

Expect a grey, gloomy and stormy weekend.

Tonight: Rain and storms will continue through midnight. After that, a few showers will pass through south Louisiana. Temperatures will drop into the lower 60s, which is well above average. Winds will be northerly at 5 mph. Low near 61.

Tomorrow: We could be waking up to a few puddles, and throughout the day, there could be passing showers and a little bit of drizzle. Skies will be cloudy otherwise. Temperatures will rise into the upper 60s, which is near average, but it will be pretty muggy. As we head into the evening, rain will begin to drive in from the southwest. There could be thunderstorms and pockets of heavy rain. High near 68.

Extended: Rain will begin on Saturday evening into Saturday night and continue through Sunday afternoon. We are under a slight risk for excessive rainfall as there is the potential for heavy rain and strong storms. A cold front will move through southeast Louisiana on Sunday afternoon, and this will lead to cooler temperatures and dry weather. Monday and Tuesday will be cooler days with lots of sunshine. Lows on Monday night could fall below freezing for the first time this season. Our temperatures will gradually rise as we enter the second half of the week, but temperatures will still be below average. There is a chance for isolated storms on Wednesday and scattered storms on Thursday.
