Wednesday AM Forecast: Looking ahead, Weekend rain tracking
Dry conditions last through the rest of the work week. We are tracking rain for Saturday.
Today & Tonight: A little more sunshine is headed your way today. There are still some clouds left over from yesterday, but they are on the way out. This afternoon will be dry with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the low 80s. Things will be warming up for the rest of the week. Tonight, temperatures will be in the low 60s.
Up Next: Thursday and Friday will be coming in warm, in the low 80s and it will be a bit humid too. Overnight temperatures will warm up into the mid-60s heading into Friday. A stray shower or two will be possible on Friday evening ahead of the next cold front. The cold front will approach the area from the west on Saturday afternoon bringing scattered showers and storms. The exact timing is still changing, but we do know that the storms will be weakening as they approach the area. Weak storms mean no lightning and outdoor activities can go on as planned with proper rain gear. The front will become so weak that it is forecast to sit over south Louisiana overnight and continue to produce on and off showers into Sunday too.
