A cold front brings us rain, wind and much colder temperatures today

A strong cold front moves through this morning.  It will bring us scattered showers and a few thunderstorms throughout the day along with windy conditions and much colder temperatures.  Our high temperature in the 70s occurred early this morning.  We will fall into the 40s and stay in the 40s through the afternoon.  It will be a blustery day, so bundle up if you are headed out today!  

Tonight will remain cloudy with scattered showers.  It will also be chilly with lows in the lower 30s north and upper 30s south.  There is a VERY SMALL chance for some sleet pellets or freezing rain north of the lake between 3-6 AM. Fortunately, IF it happens, it will not be enough to cause any travel issues since the showers will be ending toward daybreak. 

Monday will be a raw and cold day with plenty of clouds around and a few showers.  It will stay breezy with highs in the mid 40s, but it will feel like the 30s.  Make sure you dress warmly tomorrow!  Tuesday will not be a cold, but it will remain chilly with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the 50s.  We will see some milder temperatures on Wednesday ahead of another cold front.  It will be partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 60s.  

The next cold front will move through pn Wednesday Night into Thursday.  Expect scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.  Highs will be in the 60s early in the day, and then they will fall into the 50s by the afternoon.  Friday looks to be a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and cool highs around 60.

The early outlook to Christmas Weekend: Saturday will be mostly cloudy and warmer with a slight chance for rain.  Highs will be in the upper 60s.  Christmas Day looks to be a warm day with a few showers, but a strong cold front will move through Christmas Night into Monday with scattered showers and storms.  Highs could be around 70.  The forecast models are not in agreement with the timing and strength of the cold front yet, so stay tuned as there will be likely changes to the forecast as we get closer to Christmas Day.

Here is my forecast from Sunday Morning with all the details of the blustery weather:

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…
