StormTracker Forecast…A Dense Fog Advisory for a good portion of Southeast Louisiana, including Ascension and Livingston parish, through 9 A.M.. Fog shouldn’t be an issue past the mid-morning hours. Clouds will rule the sky today. Today will be a touch warmer, as well. Afternoon temperatures will top out in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Also, scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected this afternoon and evening.
A surge of warm, moist air will lead to temperatures in the upper 70s on Tuesday, along with higher rain chances. A cold front will pass through the area on Wednesday, which will knock our temperatures back into the 60s on Wednesday and 50s on Thursday; however, the rain chances won’t end once the front passes. In fact, rain chances will be at their highest on Wednesday and Thursday.
Friday will be mostly sunny and cool as high pressure settles into the area, which is ideal for any parade-goers. It will be a touch warmer on Saturday with highs in the lower 60s. We should stay dry, but a few showers may develop late Saturday night and into Sunday ahead of our next system.
Unsettled weather may develop Sunday through Mardi Gras, or even Ash Wednesday, but it is still too soon to know specifics. Stay tuned as we hash out the details in the coming days.
