A change to the running forecast-as shower and storm chances appear to remain elevated today.
Look for a quick warm up today as sunshine will dominate early. Just enough cool air lingers aloft for clouds to bubble up and produce scattered showers and thunderstorms. As has been the case all week long, storms should stay sub-severe, but could still create heavy rain, gusty winds and frequent lightning. Storms will begin to develop around the lunch hour and drift to the southwest. It will be a steamy one with highs in the low to mid 90s.
Overnight will be quiet and muggy with a low in the mid 70s.
As for the weekend... Hazy, hot and humid... a pop-up storm... highs in the mid 90s, feeling like over 100... lows in the mid 70s, feeling like a steam room. Summer in South Louisiana... what more can be said?
