Rain will continue for much of the area today. By the time we're finished with the wet stuff, an additional 1-2" will have fallen across much of Southern Louisiana. While the morning hours will see steady rains taper to scattered showers, overcast skies and a persistent north wind will make it feel very raw, especially given our recent good fortunes on the thermometers. Early morning temperatures in the lower 50s will fall into the lower 40s by late afternoon and early evening. Tonight, some breaks in the clouds and diminishing showers will allow the air to dry and further cooling to take place on account of the north breeze. A freeze is likely in Southern Mississippi, possible in the Florida Parishes, and unlikely for areas parallel to and south of the lakes.
