Today & Tonight: Thursday morning starts off mild with clear skies and temperatures in the upper-50s. Fog potential is less than yesterday but we cannot rule out patches of dense fog during early morning commute hours. By mid-morning, any fog that has formed will burn off and temperatures will quickly warm. Afternoon temperatures will return to the low-80s for the second day this week. We will see a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day with southerly winds between 7-15 mph. 

Overnight, overcast skies will build ahead of our next storm system. With the additional cloud cover, it will be hard for temperatures to cool much overnight. Friday morning will begin with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s with a slight chance to run into a spotty shower during the morning commute. 

Up Next: We finish the workweek the same way it started, with a chance of rain and storms. Different from the previous rainmaker, this system has a slightly higher chance of producing strong to severe storms. As for the timeline of the storms tomorrow, spotty activity will be around tomorrow morning with intensity and coverage increasing after noon. Throughout the afternoon and evening hours of your Friday, “on-and-off” scattered storm activity can be expected. The majority of southern Louisiana is included in a 2/5 risk for isolated severe storm development, some of the threats being localized flash flooding, hail, and strong winds.
