StormTracker Forecast…It’s another cold morning across Southeast Louisiana, despite the added cloud cover. Increasing moisture ahead of our next system will lead to cloudy skies today. Afternoon temperatures will be in the low and mid 50s. As the system gradually tracks to east throughout the day, a few showers may begin to move in from the west late this afternoon and evening. Rain chance is around 40% late this afternoon/evening. Rain chances will be at their highest during the morning hours on Thursday, so be sure to plan accordingly for your morning commute. Also, it won’t be as cold by the morning. Temperatures will be sitting in the mid and upper 40s.
Showers and isolated storms are likely as the area of low pressure moves through the region. An isolated strong storm cannot be ruled out, but organized severe weather is not anticipated. Rain totals look to be around an inch or so. Thanks to some dry air wrapping around the area of low pressure, the moisture source will mostly be cut off and rain chances will likely taper by the afternoon on Thursday; however, some residual moisture may lead to some spotty showers during the evening and late night hours. Skies will begin to clear overnight and on Friday morning, making way for mostly sunny skies on Friday and Saturday.
We will start the weekend off on a mostly sunny and seasonal note with highs in the low and mid 60s. Slightly cooler on Sunday due to cloud cover as a disturbance passes. The afternoon and evening rain chance is around 20%. If you’re looking for warmer weather, hang tight as temperatures will be back in the upper 60s and lower 70s next week.
