Foggy, Muggy and Mild For The Next Few Days

DENSE FOG ADVISORY in effect until 10 AM Monday for much of Southeast Louisiana near bodies of water. Visibility could drop to a quarter-mile or less. Drive slowly and carefully.  It goes until Noon today for areas Lakes.

More warm, humid and foggy weather expected for today through Wednesday.  Southeast winds continue to pump in Gulf Moisture and warm temperatures over the region.  This means we will continue to be mostly cloudy with isolated showers, and dense fog. Some of the fog could last for much of the day over bodies of water.  Highs will be in the upper 70s each day.  Lows will be in the 60s on both sides of the lake.

A cold front will finally move through on Thursday with spotty showers. Highs will be around 70.  It will turn much cooler on Thursday Night with clear skies.  Lows will be in the 40s.  
High pressure will briefly sit over us on Friday, and this will keep us clear/sunny.  It will be a cool day with highs around 60.  Friday Night will be cool/chilly with 30s north and 40s south. 

We will warm up headed into New Year's Weekend.  Saturday will be partly cloudy and mild with highs in the upper 60s.  It looks like we could see a few showers for New Year's Eve celebrations, Saturday Night.  Then it will turn rainy on Sunday as another cold front moves through.  Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be in the lower 70s.

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! …

Deadliest and Strongest Tornadoes In Louisiana History

If you are wondering what is the deadliest tornado ever to hit in the Baton Rouge area...it was back on April 24, 1908 in Amite, LA to Purvis, MS.  (Grazulis, Thomas P. (1993). Significant Tornadoes 1680-1991: A Chronology and Analysis of Events. Environmental Films)  143 people lost their lives.  This was part of the 1908 Dixie Tornado Outbreak.  The storm started around 11:45 AM near Weiss, LA in Livingston Parish and tracked toward St. Helena Parish.  2 people were killed in Denham Springs and 2 in Montpelier.   Then it tracked toward Amite, LA where a path of damage was around 2 miles wide.  29 people were killed there.  It then traveled on the ground to Purvis, MS where the greatest damage was and most of the lives were lost.  The damage path was around 155 miles long.  


The F-Scale and  EF-Scale didn't exist then, so it was not given a rating at the time.  However, using recent technology and assessments, the storm would have been given an F-4 or EF-4 rating.
