Cold Front Brings Us Rain and Cool Temperatures Today

A strong cold front will move through this morning.  It will bring us some scattered showers and a few thunderstorms during the morning.  Then we will become clear by the afternoon with breezy conditions and falling temperatures.  Highs will occur this morning around 70, then we will be in the lower to mid 60s this afternoon.  It will remain clear and MUCH COLDER tonight.  Lows will be in the mid 30s north with some frost, an in the lower 40s south.  Protect plants/pets/people north of the lake.

High pressure will build over us on Friday.  This will keep it clear and cool with highs in the upper 50s.  Friday Night will be mostly clear and chilly with lows in the 40s north and around 50 south.  

Our weather will start to go downhill on Saturday ahead of our next cold front.  High pressure will move east of Louisiana, and this will bring back the southerly winds.  We will see more moisture over us and warmer temperatures.  This will lead to scattered showers and a few thunderstorms during the day.  Highs will be in the 60s.  At Midnight, we will see scattered showers with temps. in the 60s, so expect a soggy start to 2017.  More rain is expected overnight with lows in the 60s.

Sunday will be cloudy and mild with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms as an upper-level low moves NE from Texas into the Plains.  Some of the rain will be heavy at times.  Highs will be in the lower 70s.  More rain is expected Sunday Night and some of it could be heavy.  Lows will be in the 60s.  

Even more rain is expected on Monday associated with the upper-level low and a cold front.  It is also expected to be heavy at times.  Rain totals between Saturday and Monday Night could be around 3-5 inches.  Some flooding issues will be possible for local rivers!

Stay tuned for updates on this as we head into next week!!

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 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…
