The cold blast is here as an area of high pressure sits north of Louisiana! Get ready for a blustery day across Southeast Louisiana. We will become mostly sunny today, but it will stay windy. It is going to be a cold day with highs only in the upper 40s, but the wind will make it feel like the 30s and 40s. Make sure you bundle up!
Tonight will be colder, but not as windy with clear skies. Lows north of the lake will fall into the upper 20s with a light freeze likely. Make sure you protect plants, pets and people. South of the lake will drop into the upper 30s with some frost, so protect plants, pets and people there too.
Saturday will be a beautiful day, but it will not be as cold. However, it will still be cool with highs in the mid 50s. Saturday Night will not be a cold either with lows in the upper 30s north and upper 40s south.
The area of high pressure will move east of Louisiana on Sunday, and that will shift the winds from the NE to the SE. This will warm us back up with partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the lower 70s.
Next week will become more active, but not very cold. One cold front will bring us rain on Monday with highs in the 70s. The front stalls along the coast for Tuesday and Wednesday with a few showers possible each day. Highs will stay in the lower 70s. Then it looks like a stronger cold front will move through by Thursday, and this one will drop temperatures again with highs in the 50s.
