Short Term Forecast: We start this Wednesday Morning with mostly cloudy skies and isolated to scattered showers. It is mild with temperatures in the 60s.
Expect another dreary and rainy afternoon across the Capital City. The cold front and a disturbance will slowly push through town and set off more scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. There could be some heavy rain at times. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy and warm with a high around 70. Some of you may not even get that warm.
The clouds and a few spotty showers will continue tonight. It will be a little cooler with lows in the lower 50s.
Rest of the Week: The cold front will dissipate over Southeast Louisiana by tomorrow. This will not allow any cooler air to follow behind it, so we will stay warm and humid. That means we will keep the clouds around along with a few stray showers during the afternoon. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s. Thursday Night will be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 50s.
Friday will have a little more sunshine with a mix of sun and clouds. It will stay warm and humid with highs in the mid 70s. Friday Night will be partly cloudy with some patchy fog. Lows will be in the upper 50s.
Weekend Outlook: The warm and somewhat humid air will stay over us this weekend. You can expect to see partly cloudy skies with a few showers popping up from time to time. Then a strong cold front will move through on Sunday Night into Monday Morning. It will bring showers and some strong thunderstorms with it as colder air returns on Monday. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s and lows in the upper 50s Saturday and Sunday.
Keep that umbrella with you and have a good day! -Dave
