Another rare July cold front headed to Southeast Louisiana tonight

"Cold" Front:  We will have a hot and very humid afternoon ahead of a rare July cold front today.  Expect partly cloudy skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms ahead of the front.  Some of the storms could be strong, and a few could be severe north of the lake.  High temperatures will be in the lower to mid 90s, but it will feel like 100-105+.


The cold front will move south into New Orleans overnight and then stall along the coast on Tuesday.  We will be mostly cloudy with isolated showers overnight.  Most of the rain will be along the coast.  It will still be muggy with lows in the mid 70s. 

Less Humid Air Returns:  Some drier and less humid air will start to filer into Southeast Louisiana on Tuesday behind the cold front.  While we will not turn "cold" we will see a break from the humidity.  Highs will be in the lower 90s. 

Even more less humid air arrives on Wednesday.  Morning temperatures will be in the upper 60s north of the lake and mid 70s …

A rare July cold front and less humid air in Louisiana

Less Humid Weather:  The rare July cold front has moved through Southeast Louisiana, and it is now stalled along our coastline.  Some drier and less humid air has moved in over us behind the front all thanks to a deep trough of low pressure.  This has brought some unseasonably cool temperatures from the Great Lakes all the way to the Gulf Coast. We could even see some record lows across the Northshore and South Mississippi tonight!  Make sure you get out and enjoy this weather because it will not last long. 

Tonight & Thursday:  We will be a little cooler and more comfortable  tonight with lows in the mid 60s north of the lake and around 70 south of the lake.  How nice is that for the middle of July?!?


Some pleasant weather is on tap for Thursday as the dry air remains over us.  We will be partly cloudy with highs around 90. 

Unfortunately, the muggy weather returns on Thursday night as the cold front retreats back to the north as a warm front.  We will be partly cloudy wit…

A rare July cold front in Louisiana?!

Rest of Today:  We will continue to see scattered showers and thunderstorms through the evening hours.  Any of the storms could be strong with heavy rain and gusty winds.  Temperatures will be in the lower to mid 80s. 

The sky will become partly cloudy overnight, but we could still see a few showers, especially along the coast.  Lows will be in the mid 70s.


July Cold Front:  Tuesday is shaping up to be a pretty soggy and stormy day as a rare July cold front moves into the Deep South.  There is a trough ahead of the front, and that will help to set off scattered to numerous showers and storms across the New Orleans area.  Some of these storms could be strong at times with gusty winds and heavy rain.  Highs will be in the upper 80s. 

More rain and storms are expected Tuesday Night into Wednesday Morning as the cold front stalls along the I-10 corridor.  Lows will be a little cooler north of the lake as they fall to the upper 60s, but we will stay in the mid 70s south.

Strong storms expected tonight across Southeast Louisiana

Climate Info:  It was the hottest day of 2014 in New Orleans today as we soared up to 95 degrees!  It looks like some relief from the heat is heading our way tonight and on Thursday.

Strong Storms Tonight:  A line of thunderstorms is expected to move into SELA from Mississippi.  They associated with an outflow boundary and a cold front. Any storms that we do see could be strong to possibly severe with gusty winds of 50+ mph, small hail, heavy rain a lot of lightning.  The storms will come to an end by Midnight as they push into the Gulf.  Overnight, it will be partly cloudy and muggy with lows in the upper 70s. 



Thursday Cold Front:  We will continue to see some rain and storms on Thursday as the cold front moves through SELA from the north.  Some of the storms could produce heavy rain at times.  We will still be hot with highs in the lower 90s. 

4th of July Weekend:  Rain chances will be near 20% on the Fourth of July and through the weekend. Any rain should die down by the…

Oppressive heat continues across Southeast Louisiana, Arthur getting stronger

Short Term Forecast:  We will have another very warm and muggy night across Southeast Louisisna with partly cloudy skies.  There is a small chance (10%) for a coastal shower overnight.  Lows will be in the upper 70s. 


Oppressive Heat:  More heat and high humidity is on tap for Wednesday.  We will have a little more moisture to work with in the atmosphere, so there is a small chance for some stray showers/storms in the afternoon/evening.  Highs will be around 93, but it will feel like 95-105! 

There is a better chance for rain on Thursday as a cold front moves into Louisiana from the north.  This front will not cool us down, but it will help to set off scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Some heavy rain will be possible.  Highs will be in the lower 90s.

4th of July Weekend:  The front will stall and dissipate along the Louisiana Coast on Friday through the weekend.  Some drier air will filter in behind the front, and that will limit the amount of rain we will see for the 4…
