Get ready for some more crazy changes to our weather starting today. The area of high pressure will move east of Louisiana today and that will shift the winds from the NE to the South. This will start to warm us back up with mostly cloudy skies today. Highs will be around 70. Tonight will actually see the temperatures warm-up all night with lows in the 60s on both sides of the lake under mostly cloudy skies.
Saturday will be mostly cloudy, warm and more humid with a slight chance for rain as a strong cold front moves toward Louisiana from the west. Highs will be around 80. The cold front will move closer to New Orleans on Saturday Night with scattered showers and thunderstorms moving into the region by Sunday Morning. Lows will be in the 60s.
The front will likely bring a squall line of storms into New Orleans on Sunday Morning and they will move east of us by Noon. Some of the storms could be strong to severe. SPC has us in a Slight Risk for severe weather. The main threat would be damaging winds, but a few tornadoes are also possible. Expect some heavy rain at times, but flooding will not be an issue. Then we will continue to see some showers behind the front during Sunday Afternoon. High temperatures in the 60s will occur in the morning and then we will fall into the 50s during the afternoon. Sunday Night will be mostly cloudy with lows in the lower 30s north and upper 30s south of the lake.
Monday will continue to be mostly cloudy with a slight chance for a few showers as the cold front stalls and dissipates along the coast. It will be a chilly day with highs only in the upper 40s.
We will stay cool on Tuesday with highs in the 50s, but a slow warm-up will begin on Wednesday and continue until Thursday with highs back in the 60s. Another cold front will move through us on Thursday with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
