We're on the leading edge of a cold front and developing low in central Texas which puts Southeast Louisiana on the warm side through the weekend. Cold air will be piling up behind the front and the low providing an increasingly large temperature change. The change comes with the frontal passage on Monday morning.
TODAY: Becoming mostly sunny with a high near 75. Wind Southwest 5-10mph.
TONIGHT: Mainly clear with fog developing late. A low near 56. South wind 3-5mph.
THIS WEEKEND: A mix of sun and clouds with cloud coverage increasing to mostly cloudy by Sunday afternoon. Daytime highs will continue to be mild with temperatures in the middle and upper 70s. Overnight lows will be in the upper 50s with early morning fog possible.
NEXT WEEK: A front pushes through Southeast Louisiana by Monday morning bringing plenty of clouds, rain and the potential for thunderstorms. Temperatures will drop 20 degrees from before the front to after the front. Daytime highs will drop into the mid to lower 60s by the middle of the week. Overnight lows will even become COLD! (I know right?!) Yes, overnight low temperatures will drop into the middle and upper 30s by Tuesday morning. They won't stay there though, so if you're not a fan of the very cold, it will at least be the seasonal average by the end of the week with daytime highs in the middle 60s and overnight lows in the middle 40s.
Have a great weekend!
