Cold Front Moves Through With Windy Weather Today

*Wind Advisory until Midnight*

A strong cold front will finally move through today.  We will have some showers and a few thunderstorms as it moves through during the morning hours.  A few storms could be strong to possibly severe with large hail being the main threat.  Once the front moves through, it will be partly cloudy with very windy conditions.  Winds will be out of the west at 25-30 mph with higher gusts.  A Wind Advisory is in effect until Midnight. High temperatures will be around 70.  

We will be partly cloudy and windy tonight.  It will become much cooler with lows in the upper 40s north and lower 50s south.  You will want a jacket on Monday Morning! 
High pressure will build over us on Monday and Tuesday.  Monday will be sunny and cool with highs in the lower 60s.  Monday Night will be clear and chilly with lows in the 40s on both sides of the lake.  Tuesday stays sunny, but it will be a tad warmer with highs around 70.  

Our next cold front arrives on Wednesday.  It will bring us a few showers, but no severe weather.  We will be mostly cloudy with spotty showers.  Highs will be in the mid 70s ahead of it.  Wednesday Night will be partly cloudy and it will turn cooler with lows in the 40s north and 50s south.  

High pressure will build over us again on Thursday through the weekend.  We will be MUCH COOLER with highs around 60 on Thursday, but we will only be in the 50s on Friday through the weekend!  Lows will be in the 30s north and 40s south.  Finally Winter temperatures return to New Orleans!

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…
