Overall pleasant forecast for commemorating our fallen heroes
This Memorial Day, expect the Louisiana warm season to be in full swing for at least the first half of the week.
Hot and steamy! An isolated thunderstorm is possible this afternoon. If we see any, they'll likely start along the sea/lake breeze, and potentially move inland by the afternoon. Overall, it's hit or miss and very similar to this past weekend.
High temperatures will be in the lower 90's and overnight low temperatures will be in the lower 70s. Each day, a chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm is possible. Some of you may see rain every day, and some may see none. Overall expect about 20%-30% of the area to see a storm in the afternoon. Not much changes until the latter half of the week. An approaching system will bring a better chance of showers by Friday and through the weekend. This will block the sun out as well as cool things down with some slightly drier and cooler air from the north.
A heartfelt thanks to all service members on this important day. Thank a veteran if you have the opportunity and remember for whom this day commemorates.
