Carry on, carry on
The pleasant January weather experienced over the weekend will continue into mid-week.
Today and Tonight: Sun will rule the roost one again as many South Louisiana thermometers flirt with a high temperature near 70°. Overnight, lows will be close to average, in the low 40s, under mainly clear skies.
Looking Ahead: Tuesday will be mild again with highs nearing 70° although a few clouds may be spotted with a weak disturbance pushing a cold front into the area. Those clouds will hold temperatures up a bit overnight with lows in the middle and upper 40s. Behind the weak front, resulting temperatures on Wednesday will return to average. By the end of the week, a stronger system puts rain back on the menu with cloudy and chilly weather otherwise.
Forecast Discussion: High pressure will continue to dominate the region through Monday. Subsidence will continue occurring with mainly clear skies and compressional warming keeping temperatures above average during the day. The clear skies at night though, will to allow a considerable drop off in temperatures, back to average in the lower 40s.A shortwave trough pushing through the south will guide another cold front into and through the region on Tuesday Night. As of now, it looks as though this front, like the last, will have little moisture to work with and will cross dry. By Thursday, a more significant wave in the mid-levels will spark showers and bring back the gloomy, chilly weather for the end of the week.
