Tuesday Morning: Scattered showers and storms today; Risk for severe weather on Wednesday

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…A weakening cold front will begin to dip to the south toward the Gulf of Mexico before stalling out right over south Louisiana tonight. Scattered showers and isolated storms are expected today and tonight/overnight. Along the boundary, we could see training showers, which are repeated areas of rain. With that being said, we could see localized flash flooding in the low-lying and flood-prone areas. Also, the Storm Prediction Center has placed our area under a Marginal Risk (level 1 out of 5) for severe weather tonight. The threat is low, but not zero. The main threats would be hail and damaging wind. Otherwise, today will be warm, humid, and mostly cloudy. Temperatures will top out around 80°F. Areas of fog will develop after midnight tonight.

Wednesday: An area of low pressure will track over south Louisiana and a warm front will lift to the north. Areas south of the warm front, also known as the warm sector, will face the threat for severe weather. The SPC has our area under a Slight Risk (level 2 out of 5) for severe weather. The timing would be mainly Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening, but storms may develop as early as Wednesday morning. Be sure to stay weather aware — all modes of severe weather will be possible, including damaging wind, hail, and tornadoes. Also, heavy rain may lead to isolated flash flooding. Rainfall totals look to be around 1 to 3 inches with some up to 4 inches.

Thursday: Morning showers may impact early morning commutes. The cold front will pass through the area, leaving us partly to mostly cloudy. Highs will be in the mid 60s and overnight temperatures will be back in the 40s.

Friday: Sunny and beautiful with highs in the mid 60s. Overnight temperature will dip to around 41.

Weekend: Pleasant weekend with highs in the 60s and 70s. More clouds on Sunday before a few showers move in late Sunday night and Monday.
