Tonight: It will be a pretty warm night with temperatures almost 10 degrees above average. We’ll stay nice and dry with increasing clouds. By sunrise, skies will be mostly cloudy. Winds will be light out of the southeast. Low near 50.
Tomorrow: We’ll start the morning off with cloudy but dry skies, but this will not last. By the afternoon, scattered showers and storms will move in to southeast Louisiana from the west. Temperatures will rise into the upper 60s and lower 70s, and it will feel a little muggy with added moisture. This will all be ahead of our next cold front. It will arrive late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. The line will arrive around midnight. The primary threats will be heavy rain and gusty winds. High near 70.
Extended: Christmas Eve will be pretty chilly following tomorrow’s cold front. Temperatures will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s, but the wind chill will be much lower. Overnight lows will fall below freezing making for a cold Christmas morning. Highs on Christmas will rise into the lower 50s, and it will be mostly sunny. Our warm up will begin on Saturday with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Highs will then jump into the upper 60s and lower 70s on Sunday. Our next cold front will likely arrive on Sunday night or Monday morning, but the timing is still uncertain. Expect showers ahead of this front and cooler temperatures following this front.
