A weak cold front will sweep across Louisiana today, but it will not have much moisture associated with it. Therefore, we will be mostly cloudy and mild with only a slight chance for a shower. Highs will be in the mid 60s. Tonight will be partly cloudy, but we will not see a big cool-down behind this front since the air mass behind it has a Pacific origin vs Canadian one. Lows will be in the upper 40s north and mid 50s south.
Friday will still be a mild day with mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the mid 60s. Fog is possible Friday Night with lows in the 50s north and 60s south.
Get ready for an unseasonably warm Christmas Weekend! An upper-level low will move from Baja California NE into the Rocky Mountains. This low and a warm front will transport in warm and more humid air from the Pacific and Gulf over Louisiana all weekend. At the same time, a ridge of high pressure will sit over the Eastern Gulf and this will pump in southerly flow over us. We will have partly cloudy skies on Christmas Eve with highs in the mid 70s. If you are headed to any church services on Christmas Eve Afternoon/Evening it will be mild with temperatures falling into the 60s.
Christmas Day will be mostly cloudy, mild and muggy with some fog. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s. You won't need your coat if you are headed to church or going to any Christmas Celebrations during the day. While these temperatures are warm, they are not as warm as last year when we had a record high of 82°!
