Today: The main line of storms has passed as of 5 a.m. Most areas have been dropped from the flash flood watch, but it still includes Pointe Coupee, West Feliciana, East Feliciana, St. Helena, part of Tangipahoa, Wilkinson, Amite, Pike and Walthall. The watch expires at 10 a.m. Parts of our area are still under a marginal risk for severe weather, but the main threat will shift to the east today.
The cold front will likely push through this afternoon. There is still the chance for spotty showers today, but the severe threat is over. Skies this afternoon will be partly cloudy with temperatures rising into the low 80s. Dew points will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s, so it will feel muggy throughout the day.
The rest of the weekend will be mostly dry. The next chance for precipitation will be on Wednesday. Through that point, we’re only looking at less than half an inch for most locations, but remember that anything can change.
