Pleasant Weather Today, But Rain Returns On Sunday

We will have another nice day today as an area of high pressure moves east of Louisiana.  This will start to send some Gulf Moisture back over us, so we will see partly cloudy skies today.  It will be cool to mild with highs in the upper 60s.  Tonight will be mostly cloudy with patchy fog.  It will not be as chilly with lows in the 50s. 
Our weather will start to change on Sunday as a trough of low pressure moves across the Southern Plains.  This will draw up plenty of moisture from the Gulf over us.  Showers and storms over the South Texas Coast will move NE toward Louisiana.  This will spread over us during the day, but it will not be a washout.  Just expect spotty to scattered showers and storms.  Some storms along our coast could be strong at times with heavy rain and gusty winds.  Highs will warm back into the lower 70s.  Watch out for some fog on Sunday Night/Monday Morning with lows int he 60s.

This trough will move through on Monday, and it will continue to send scattered showers and storms over us.  Some of the storms could be strong to possibly severe.  Expect heavy rain along with some gusty winds with the storms.  I'll have a better feel on how strong the storms could be by Monday Morning, so stay tuned for that update.  Otherwise, we will be warm and humid with highs in the mid 70s.  

A cold front will move into the region on Tuesday and it will move through by Wednesday Morning.  We will have scattered showers and storms all day and night.  Some of the storms could be strong at times with heavy rain and gusty winds.  It will be very mild and humid ahead of the front with highs in the upper 70s.  

Once the cold front moves through on Wednesday Morning we will see an end to the rain, and it will become mostly sunny.  However, do not expect a big drop in the temperatures.  It will only be a few degrees cooler with highs in the lower 70s.  

High pressure will build over us on Thursday and Friday.  We will have plenty of sunshine, low humidity and mild high temperatures in the lower to mid 70s. Lows will be in the 40s north and 50s south.

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! …

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…
