A surface low pressure is scraping by the Louisiana coastline. This storm system has been the culprit for a few days of cloud cover and now some rain showers as we kick off 2014. Expect showers to become more numerous as the day progresses with a time of steady rain this evening into early Thursday. This low will meander in place with rain showers continuing in Southeastern Louisiana until a cold front associated with another low well to our north swoops in and carries away our unsettled weather. However, as you might expect, behind the front comes some chilly air. As rain comes to a close on Thursday, a cold front will push through, thus clearing out our skies. However it will also turn breezy as cold air invades the region. We'll actually have an early high on Thursday in the lower 50s and thermometers will fall into the 40s during the afternoon.
