Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for St. Helena Parish, and Tangipahoa Parish. This warning is until 1:45 pm. Strong winds of 50 mile per hour are expected with heavy rainfall and lighting.
Today: A cold front will push through today bringing showers and thunderstorms from 11am to 4pm. As the front pushes through, expect breezy weather as well with dropping temperatures this evening. Highs should still reach the mid-to-upper 70s. Heavier downpours are possible at times but flooding shouldn’t be too big of a concern since the rain won’t be around all day. Certainly, have an umbrella ready if you’ll be out around lunchtime. An inch or two of rain is not out of the question, especially for areas with heavier downpours. Tonight will be mostly cloudy with lows near 50 degrees. Lingering showers are possible during the evening and overnight hours.
Tuesday: A few showers may be possible on Tuesday morning. Cooler temperatures will be in place after the front with highs near 60 degrees.
Wednesday: Highs will be back into the upper-60s with scattered storms from a disturbance pushing into the South from the Gulf of Mexico. Overnight lows in the mid-50s.
Thursday-Friday: The end of the week will be mostly dry but a few showers may still be possible on Thursday with a possible stray shower on Friday. Highs in the upper-70s Thursday but near 80 degrees on Friday. This is very above average given the time of year.
Saturday-Sunday: Highs reach near 80 again on Saturday. Another cold front is possible on Saturday bringing showers and thunderstorms. We only warm to 65v degrees on Sunday thanks to the cold front.
