Sunny, warmer today

Once more our skies will be blue and sun will be plentiful. High pressure is positioned over Louisiana promoting subsiding air and the previously mentioned sunny skies. Winds are light as well and will remain that way today. The high isn't staying put for long though. I expect it to slide to our southeast this evening, setting up a return flow off of the Gulf and allowing some high clouds to develop late in the day. With that, thermometers will jump back into the upper 60s.

Incoming tonight-cold front number 3 this week. Like the Wednesday Morning frontal passage, this one will by mainly dry. We may notice some overnight clouds and a stray sprinkle but other than that, just another wind shift. By Friday Morning, wind vanes will indicate a northerly component to our breeze. Therefore, while the day will start just below average, invading cold air will stop afternoon thermometers from getting any closer than about 10° below average. More significant, the continued cold air advance expected Friday Night into Saturday, as temps fall into the upper 20s. Don't be surprised if the National Weather Service posts some freeze bulletins.
