Short Term Forecast: This Wednesday Morning is starting off with mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers across Southeast Louisiana. It is chilly with temperatures in the mid 30s. Better bundle up and take that umbrella with you again!
More of the same wet and dreary weather is on tap today. The stationary front is still in place along the Louisiana and Mississippi Coasts. This means we will still have plenty of clouds and scattered showers. The bulk of the rain will come before noon with only spotty showers later in the day. It will be a cold day with highs only in the lower 40s.
A cold upper-level low will move across Texas and into Louisiana overnight. This will bring us some freezing temperatures just as the rain ends. Therefore, I am not expecting any wintry precipitation here in Baton Rouge. There may be a sleet pellet or two near McComb, MS on Thursday Morning, but that would be it. We will be partly cloudy overnight as the rain comes to an end. Lows will be in the lower 30s.
Rest of the Week: The cold-core upper-level low will move across the Southeast U.S. on Thursday and push the front off to the south and east. An area of high pressure will build in behind it and that will FINALLY put an end to the rain!!!!!! Let the dry-out begin!! We will be sunny, but still cool with highs in the lower 50s. Thursday Night will be clear with a light freeze as the lows will dip into the lower 30s.
Friday is going to be another gorgeous sunny and dry day! Highs will be in the upper 50s and lows in the mid 30s.
Weekend Forecast: The area of high pressure will remain over the Southeast U.S. all weekend. Therefore we will have sunny skies and some warmer temperatures on Saturday and Sunday. Highs will be in the lower 60s and lows will still be chilly as the fall to the mid to upper 30s.
Stay dry and warm today. Have a good one! -Dave
