A strong cold front headed our way on Monday, and the tropics are getting active in the Atlantic

Tonight Forecast:  Look for a muggy night with partly cloudy skies, patchy dense fog and a 10% chance for a coastal shower.  Lows will be in the upper 60s north and lower 70s south.  

Strong Cold Front:  The weather will REALLY start to change on Monday as a strong cold front comes out of the Great Plains and into the Deep South.  Clouds will be on the increase throughout the morning and we will start to see scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon.  A squall line of storms is forecast to develop over Texas and move into Louisiana throughout the day.  Scattered storms are expected to develop ahead of the line.  Some of these storms could be strong to possibly severe with gusty winds and heavy rain.  SPC has us in a Slight Risk for Severe Weather.  However, the greatest area for severe weather will be in Southern Mississippi.  Highs will still be very warm as they climb into the upper 80s.

Summer-like weather this week across Southeast Louisiana

Short Term Forecast:  The Summer-like conditions continue across Southeast Louisiana today and the next few days thanks to the area of high pressure sitting over us.  Warm and humid air will be pumped in from the Gulf and that will lead to partly cloudy skies along with a small chance for rain today.  Highs will be in the upper 80s.  

A muggy night is on tap with patchy dense fog again.  Watch for visibilities to be less than 1/4 mile at times on Thursday Morning.  Lows will be in the upper 60s north and lower 70s south.  

Rest of the Week:  We will have a slightly better chance for rain on Thursday and Friday as more Gulf Moisture streams over us.  We will have a mix of sun and clouds with a 20% chance for showers/storms.  Highs will stay in the upper 80s and lows will be in the 60s north and 70s south.  

Weekend Outlook:  The area of high pressure will break down this weekend, but we will stay very warm and humid with partly cloudy skies.  There will still be a slight chance (20%) of s…
