The cold front is now east of Louisiana. Colder and breezy weather is in store for us today with mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be around 60°, but it will feel cooler with the winds.
Tonight will become clear and colder. Lows north of the lake will be in the mid 30s with some frost, so protect plants, pets and people. South of the lake we will be in the mid 40s.
High pressure will build over us on Thursday, and this will lead to plenty of sunshine. It will be a few degrees warmer with highs in the mid 60s. Thursday Night will not be as chilly with lows in the 40s on both sides of the lake.
Our weather will start to change on Friday. High pressure will be east of Louisiana, so southerly winds will return. This will warm us back up with partly to mostly cloudy skies, and we could see a stray shower or two. Highs will be in the upper 60s. A disturbance/wave aloft will move across the Northern Gulf on Friday Night. It will set off scattered showers mainly south of I-10 and along the coast. Lows will be in the 50s
There will still be a few showers over the region on Saturday Morning as the disturbance/wave moves to the east of Louisiana. Then we will become partly cloudy by the afternoon. It will be a warmer day with highs in the mid 70s. More unseasonably warm and pleasant weather is expected on Sunday with partly cloudy skies.
