In the wake of the Severe Weather Outbreak on Christmas and plenty of storm reports, the National Weather Service will be surveying the damage and will determine the strength of the tornadoes that hit Zachary and Centerville yesterday, this morning. Colder air is filtering into South Louisiana today and tonight.
TODAY: Breezy and cold with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Wind from the Northwest at 10-15mph will make it feel more like the middle and upper 40s.
TONIGHT: Clearing and freezing. Overnight lows will drop to about 30 degrees, some areas could see temperatures in the upper 20s. Wind will switch around to the Northeast and decrease to 5-10mph.
THURSDAY: Highs in the mid 50s and overnight lows in the mid 40s. Sunny and clear.
FRIDAY: Increasing clouds and temperatures ahead of another cold front. Frontal passage expected Friday afternoon with rain and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 60s and overnight lows in the upper 40s.
THE WEEKEND: A mix of sun and clouds with daytime highs in the upper 50s. Overnight lows will be in the middle 40s Saturday morning and then dip into the low 30s on Sunday morning.
NEXT WEEK: Another low develops in Southern Texas and brings a chance for rain beginning on Monday and carries through Wednesday with a front forcing through on Thursday. This front could reinforce the cold wintry air in South Louisiana and bring the temperatures down again by the front's passage on Thursday. Highs through Wednesday will be in the middle to lower 60s during the day and the low 40s on Monday to the upper 40s by Wednesday morning.
