We will have some pleasant weather today with plenty of sunshine and unseasonably warm temperatures. Highs will be in the mid 80s. This will be near the record high of 85° set back in 2001.
The weather will go downhill tonight as our next system moves through. The old cold front will retreat back to the north as a warm front this evening. At the same time, an upper-level low will move out of the Rockies toward St. Louis. As this happens, scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop starting around 10 PM and will continue overnight. Some of the storms along and south of the warm front could be strong to severe! SPC has put all of Southeast Louisiana in a Marginal Risk for severe weather, and the Northshore into Southern Mississippi in a Slight Risk. You will need to stay weather aware tonight into Wednesday Morning!! Have your weather radios and weather apps on standby mode to alert you to any warnings overnight. Lows will be in the lower 70s.
After the threat for strong to severe storms on Wednesday Morning, we will become mostly sunny and it stays warm with highs in the lower 80s. Wednesday Night will be clear and MUCH COOLER with lows in the 50s.
High pressure will build over us on Thursday through the weekend. Thursday and Friday will be sunny, less humid and much cooler with highs only in the lower 70s. Lows will be chilly in the 40s north and 50s south.
The weekend will be gorgeous with partly cloudy skies, low humidity and mild highs in the mid to upper 70s. Lows will be in the 40s/50s north and 50s/60s south.
