The cold front is moving through now and the rain will be coming to an end soon.

The rain will come to an end around 10 AM as the cold front moves east of New Orleans.  Then we will become partly cloudy through early afternoon with clearing by late afternoon.  High temperatures in the mid 70s occurred early this morning ahead of the front and will fall behind the cold front.  We will only rebound back into the upper 60s during the afternoon with the sunshine.  

Tonight will be clear and much cooler.  Lows north of the lake will be in the upper 30s with some patchy frost. Make sure you cover or bring in your plants.  Have a warm place for pets too!  South of the lake will be in the upper 40s.  

High pressure will briefly build over us on Thursday and Friday.  We will see plenty of sunshine each day with cool high temperatures in the mid 60s.  Lows will be in the 30s north with some patchy frost and 40s south of the lake.  Make sure you get out and enjoy the sunshine because changes are coming this weekend.

It looks like we will have some soggy weather this weekend as an area of low pressure develops in the Western Gulf of Mexico.  It will slowly move to the NE right across Louisiana and the Deep South.  This will bring us spotty showers on Saturday, but look for widespread steady rain on Sunday.  The clouds and rain will keep high temperatures only in the mid 60s all weekend.  Lows will be in the 50s on both sides of the lake.

The Unseasonably Cool Weather Continues

Short Term Forecast:  It is a very cold morning across the Capital City with clear skies and temperatures in the 30s.  A light freeze is expected!  I hope that you brought in your plants last night.  Take that jacket with you this morning.

An area of high pressure remains over the Southeast U.S. today.  This will keep us sunny and with the northwest winds over us, we will stay cool.  High temperatures will be in the upper 50s.

Another freeze is expected tonight for the Baton Rouge area.  We will be clear with calm winds and very good radiational cooling.  Low temperatures will fall into the upper 20s to lower 30s.  The NWS has issued a Freeze Warning for areas along and north of the I-10/12 corridor from 2 AM to 8 AM Wednesday Morning.  The freeze could last 2 to 6+ hours and that would be long enough to kill any vegetation.  Make sure you bring in your plants or at least cover them tonight!  Bundle up!

Week Ahead:  The area of high pressure will stay put through Wednesday. …

Major Snowstorm Headed To Northeast US Tomorrow

For all of my friends and family that live in the Northeast US...here is my latest analysis of the winter storm heading your way on Friday into Saturday:

The same area of low pressure that brought the heavy rain and thunderstorms to Louisiana last night and this morning will be moving up the East Coast on Friday.  It will get much stronger and become a  Nor' Easter that will impact all the major cities from Philly to NYC to Boston as well as inland areas.

Delmarva to NJ Coastal Areas:  Winter Storm Warning in effect from Friday AM until Saturday AM!  It looks like it will start out as a brief period of snow along the coast in the morning then change into a windy rain during the day.  Then go to a heavy snow late Friday into Saturday Morning.  Snow accumulations of 4-8" are possible.  Some minor ice accumulations are possible too. Winds will be sustained around 30+ mph and coastal erosion will be possible too.

NE PA: Winter Storm Warning from 10 am Friday until 7 am Saturday! …

More Heavy Rain and Storms Today

...Flash Flood Watch Through Thursday Evening...

Short Term Forecast:  We have a mostly cloudy, mild and muggy start to this Wednesday with a few showers on the radar.  Showers will continue to pop-up during the morning hours.  Temperatures are in the mid 60s.

The upper-level low remains parked over Louisiana this afternoon, and that will be the focus for setting off more scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms.  By the way...these upper-level lows are always a pain to forecast!  A few of the storms could be strong with gusty winds.  Heavy rain is likely once again thanks to the very saturated air over Baton Rouge.  We could pick up a few inches of rain today.  High temperatures will only be in the mid to upper 70s.

Due to the heavy rain we had yesterday, and the heavy rain expected today through Thursday, the NWS has issued a Flash Flood Watch for all of Southeast Louisiana.  Rainfall totals are forecast to be around 3 to 5 inches through Thursday Evening!  Please watch out fo…
