StormTracker Team Forecast…An unsettled weather pattern is setting up across the region all ahead of the arrival of a strong cold front. A warm front to our south will lift to the north across South Louisiana, which will lead to increasing moisture and warmer temperatures. The warm front will provide the lift for showers and storms to develop ahead of the cold front, which will arrive on Thursday morning.
You can pack the rain gear on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Coverage will remain scattered on Tuesday before becoming numerous at times on Wednesday, Wednesday night, and early Thursday. A few stronger storms will be possible, along with heavy rain. Rainfall totals may be around 1-2″ with locally higher amounts in stronger storms. The cold front is forecast to move through Thursday morning, which means temperatures are going to drop and winds will pick up as colder and drier air moves in from the north and northwest. A few isolated showers will be possible during the afternoon on Thursday, but dry weather is expected for trick-or-treating. Kids won’t near to pair rain gear with their costumes, but they will need jackets or coats. Temperatures will be in the 50s for trick-or-treating, but with the wind, it will feel colder.
We’ve got gumbo weather ahead, y’all! Friday morning temperatures will be sitting in the lower 40s – Some areas may drop into the upper 30s! Afternoon highs will only be in the upper 50s on Friday. The cool and dry air is expected to stick around through the weekend with highs in the 60s. Overnight lows will be in the 40s.
Friendly reminder: Daylight Saving Time comes to an end Sunday morning! Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour!
