A cold front will be moving through Southeastern Louisiana beginning on Thursday morning. A broken, narrow line of scattered showers and a few storms will be ahead of the front. There does exist a low-end threat for isolated strong to severe storms.
Timing: Scattered showers and some storms will begin to materialize near the area around daybreak. The front will push northwest to southeast with clearing of the rain and clouds by the mid-afternoon.
Threats: The overall risk for organized severe weather over our area remain low, but non-zero. Damaging winds are the main concern, but some of the stronger storms could produce a quick, heavy downpour and lightning.
The higher risk for severe weather will be areas northeast of our area towards Eastern Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.
After the front, temperatures will fall from the lower 70s during the early afternoon to the 50s during the evening hours. A quick cool down is expected with highs during the weekend in the 50s and 60s and morning lows falling into the 30s and 40s.
How to Prepare
Be sure to multiple ways to receive weather alerts and stay tuned to updated forecasts during the day. Severe storms are possible overnight, so make sure your phone is unmuted, charged, and turned on for WEA notifications.
Have a plan and a safe place to go to if a warning is issued for your location. Find a lower-level, interior room away from windows. Secure outdoor furniture and decor beforehand.
