The upper-level low that kept the clouds over us all day on Sunday is finally moving to the east. At the same time, an area of high pressure will build over us from the west. This will lead to plenty of sunshine and warmer temperatures today. Highs will be in the upper 70s. Tonight will be mostly clear and not as chilly/cool with lows in the 50s.
The area of high pressure will move east of Louisiana on Tuesday, and this will bring back more southerly winds. We will be mostly sunny and warmer with highs in the lower 80s. Tuesday Night will be mostly clear with lows in the 60s.
Wednesday will be pretty quiet during the day as a cold front heads our way. Expect partly cloudy skies with highs in the mid 80s. The cold front will move through on Wednesday Night into Thursday Morning with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could be strong north of the lake as a squall line moves through. Lows will be around 70.
The rain and storms will continue early on Thursday, and then we will become clear by midday. It will still be warm with highs in the mid 80s.
Friday and Saturday look to be warm and humid with just a slight chance for rain each day. Highs will be in the mid 80s. This will be good for Jazz Fest!
It now looks like our next cold front will move through on Sunday with some late-day scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs will still be in the 80s. The timing will be critical with this front for day 3 of Jazz Fest. At this time, the later shows could be wet. Of course, this is 7 days out, so the forecast will likely change! Stay tuned!
