Tuesday Morning: Passing showers and storms; Threat for severe weather Wednesday and Wednesday night

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…You will need to keep the umbrella nearby once again today. Scattered showers and isolated storms will likely develop today and this evening. Rain chance is around 40%. Any peek of sun will likely warm some areas to around 80°F.

Wednesday & Wednesday Night: Rain chances will continue to run high as a cold front begins to push in. The Storm Prediction Center has our area under a Slight Risk (threat level 2 out of 5) for severe weather Wednesday and Wednesday night. Damaging wind would be the main threat as a squall line moves into the area, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Rainfall totals look to be manageable, despite the slow-moving nature of the system. Be sure to stay weather aware!

Thursday & Friday: Showers will continue through early Thursday morning before ending from west to east and temperatures will drop. Even though the system will be exiting the area, clouds will linger until Thursday night. Afternoon temperatures will be in the 50s. Skies will clear by Friday morning and it will be much colder. We’ll be sitting in the mid and upper 30s Friday morning. Thankfully, we will see wall-to-wall sunshine on Friday, which will help us warm to around 60°F. Bundle up if you’re headed out for evening Valentine’s Day plans or if you will attend the Krewe of Artemis parade Friday night.

Weekend: Increasing rain chances with highs in the 60s and 70s. Keep rain gear handy if you’ll be attending any area parades. This may change — stay tuned!
