Recent cold front stirs quite a scene
The cold front that swept through our region on Wednesday, eliminating clouds and returning the sun, stirred up a lot more than just the winds in portions of New Mexico and Texas.
A sharp change in wind direction led to strong northerly winds, which kicked up a wall of dust, also known as a haboob, for our more arid neighbors to the west.
Haboobs can be created by cold fronts in the United States, but are more often created when decaying thunderstorms send a burst of air to the surface forcing dust upward and outward from the area beneath the storm.
Nothing like that is anticipated in Southeastern Louisiana of course. Just expect a continued northerly breeze and a chilly morning on Thursday.
