A weak cold front will move into or near SE LA today. This will help set off a few showers or storms before it moves east and dissipates. However, most of you will not see any rain. Otherwise, it will be partly cloudy and warm with highs in the lower 80s. Tonight will be mostly clear, cooler and comfortable. Lows will be in the upper 50s north and mid 60s south of the lake.
An area of high pressure will build over the Gulf South Thursday and Friday. We will be dry and partly cloudy each day. Highs will still be warm as they climb into the lower 80s. Each night will have a few clouds with lows in the 50s north and 60s south.
Looking ahead into Easter Weekend, the area of high pressure will move east of us. That means return flow, or southerly winds will be back. These winds will keep us warm, but they will also transport in some Gulf Moisture. This will help to set off a few showers or storms each day with partly cloudy skies. However, the chance will be low, so the rain will not impact any plans for a crawfish boil or Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday. Highs will be in the lower 80s. Lows will be in the 60s.
