Another Gorgeous Day With Warmer Temperatures

High pressure is currently sitting over us and it will move to the east of Louisiana today.  This will allow us to have plenty of sunshine with warmer high temperatures in the lower 80s.  Tonight will have a few clouds and it will not be as cool.  Lows will be in the mid to upper 60s.  
Wednesday will be a warm and breezy day ahead of a cold front.  There will be a slight chance for a shower late in the day.  Highs will be in the mid 80s.  The cold front will move through on Wednesday Night into Early on Thursday Morning with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Some of the storms could be strong to severe.  However, the better chance for severe weather will be over Central MS and North LA.  Lows will be around 70.
Thursday will start out with the rain and storms for the morning commute as the cold front moves through.  Then we will become clear and breezy in the afternoon.  It will not cool down much with this front as high temperatures will be in the mid 80s.

Much Cooler and Breezy Today

Warm With A Few Storms Again Today

Today's Forecast: We will continue to be warm and humid today with another chance for a few showers and storms this afternoon.

Plan For More Rain and Thunderstorms Today

Today's weather will be very similar to what we saw on Sunday - plenty of clouds mixed with sun along with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  These storms are being set off by a weak disturbance/wave aloft.  As the wave moves through, it taps into the warm/humid air over us and sets off the storms.  The storms could produce some gusty winds and contain heavy rain.  Highs today will be in the lower 80s.  Tonight will be partly cloudy with patchy fog and a slight chance for a shower.  Lows will be in the 60s.  
The wave will move east of us on Tuesday, but it will still be close enough to set off spotty showers and storms with mostly cloudy skies.  Highs will be in the lower 80s.  
We start to dry out on Wednesday as an area of high pressure aloft moves over the Deep South.  This will make it partly cloudy with highs in the lower 80s.  The high pressure will sit right over us on Thursday and Friday.  This will allow us to see plenty of sunshine along with some warmer temperatures…
