Saturday Night: Heavy rain threat overnight

Weather

Stay weather aware and rain and storms pass overnight.

Tonight: Rain will begin shortly after sunset moving in from the southwest. The chance of precipitation is 90% with most of south Louisiana receiving rain. There is the possibility of isolated strong to severe thunderstorms, which will bring the threat of heavy rain, damaging winds and maybe even a brief tornado. Winds will be easterly at 5-10 mph. Low near 59.

Tomorrow: Rain will continue through early Sunday afternoon. Throughout this period, there could be pockets of heavy rain, which could lead to isolated flooding in some locations. Make sure to stay weather aware. A could front will help to push the rain out of the state during the afternoon, and after the front passes, it will be much cooler outside. We’ll hit our high in the morning before temperatures start to fall. Winds will be northeasterly at 5-10 mph with higher gusts possible. High near 66.

Extended: We’ll notice the effects of the cold front on Monday with highs only in the lower 50s. Overnight lows will fall below freezing for the first time this season. Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 50s, and on both days, we’ll see lots of sunshine. We’ll then jump into the lower 60s on Wednesday with a chance for overnight showers. Expect scattered showers on Thursday. Highs will only be in the upper 50s. The weekend looks like it will mainly be dry with temperatures in the low to mid 50s.
