Pat Shingleton: "Action in October and November!"
Fog could patch and blanket a few areas with a gradual burn-off by 8:30 AM. Sunshine, mixed with clouds, will drive the daytime high to 82 with evening clouds, clearing and 64 for the overnight low. From now through the end of November, the Gulf Coast typically experiences additional thunderstorm activity. Our transition from a tropical weather pattern to frontal passages is one reason. Weather systems, interacting with elevated humidity and dew point readings, fire off the storms. On October 29, 2002, a twister hit a section of southeast Baton Rouge, leveling trees and damaging roofs as straight-line winds added to the damage in Pearl River County. On November 15, 2006, storms produced tornadoes near Lake Pontchartrain with touchdowns in Greensburg and Tylertown and a fatality in Montpelier. On November 24, 2004, straight line winds damaged 152 homes in Slidell. On November 21, 1997 70 homes and 4 buildings in Covington were damaged.
