We start off this Monday Morning with partly cloudy skies and some patchy fog. It is cool with temperatures in the mid 50s. You may want to take that jacket with you and your umbrella too.
A cold front is located along the Louisiana Coast, and a strong disturbance will move into Louisiana from the north this afternoon. The disturbance will interact with the cold front and they will set off scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Some could be strong to severe at times. SPC has placed all of South Louisiana in a Slight Risk for severe weather. The main threats will be damaging winds and hail, but there is also a slight chance for a tornado. The greatest chance of seeing severe weather today will be along and south of I-10 and 12. Otherwise, we will have a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the lower 70s.
The showers and storms will continue through the evening hours and they could still be strong. Then overnight it will become mostly cloudy with only a slight chance of a lingering shower or storm. Low temperatures will be in the lower 50s.
