Storms for Louisiana and the Atlantic
On Monday, expect partly sunny skies early, with thermometers jumping up to the lower 90s. Humidity will stay quite high. By late morning and early afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will be developing from east to west across the region. These showers and thunderstorms will be widespread and slow-moving, thus some heavy downpours will be possible. The storms could also contain gusty wind and frequent lightning.
Tonight, the showers and storms will end and skies will go partly cloudy with lows in the low 70s.
