2. LOUISIANA WEATHER:

SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA:  Today and Tuesday will be mostly cloudy throughout the day.  Wednesday will be mostly cloudy during the day with isolated showers at night.  Thursday and Friday will be mostly cloudy with a 20 to 30 percent chance of showers throughout the day.

Temperatures:  Today: 62/48, Tuesday: 69/58, Wednesday: 73/61, Thursday: 74/57, Friday: 69/53

HAZARDOUS WEATHER:  

A gradual warm up will continue through mid-week with low-level flow becoming more southeasterly or southerly off the Gulf. This onshore flow will lead to increasing moisture, setting the stage for some patchy late night fog beginning Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Small rain chances return to the forecast on Thursday as a frontal boundary approaches the area. The front will sag slowly southward across the area late Thursday and early Friday before gradually washing out over the coastal waters early in the weekend. Rain chances will linger behind the front as warmer air and moisture aloft override the cooler surface air.

 

SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA:  Today will be partly sunny during the day and mostly cloudy at night.  Tuesday and Wednesday will be mostly cloudy throughout the day.  Thursday will be mostly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of showers throughout the day.  Friday will be mostly cloudy with a chance of showers during the day and mostly cloudy with a slight chance of showers at night.

Temperatures:  Today: 64/46, Tuesday: 69/55, Wednesday: 72/58, Thursday: 76/56, Friday: 72/52

HAZARDOUS WEATHER: Patchy fog development is expected late tonight and early Tuesday morning.  Areas of fog, possibly dense at times, are expected Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, and possibly again Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

 

 

CENTRAL LOUISIANA: Today and Tuesday will be partly sunny during the day and mostly cloudy at night.  Wednesday will be mostly cloudy throughout the day.  Thursday will be mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of showers throughout the day.  Friday will be mostly cloudy with a 20 to 30 percent chance of showers throughout the day.

Temperatures:  Today: 62/44, Tuesday: 69/54, Wednesday: 74/61, Thursday: 74/56, Friday: 66/48

HAZARDOUS WEATHER: 

A gradual warm up will continue through mid-week with low-level flow becoming more southeasterly or southerly off the Gulf. This onshore flow will lead to increasing moisture, setting the stage for some patchy late night fog beginning Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.  Small rain chances return to the forecast on Thursday as a frontal boundary approaches the area. The front will sag slowly southward across the area late Thursday and early Friday before gradually washing out over the coastal waters early in the weekend.  Rain chances will linger behind the front as warmer air and moisture aloft override the cooler surface air.

 

NORTHERN LOUISIANA: Today will be mostly cloudy throughout the day.  Tuesday will be partly sunny during the day with a 20 percent chance of showers at night.  Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of showers during the day and mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms at night.  Thursday will be mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms during the day and mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of showers at night.  Friday will be mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of showers throughout the day.

Temperatures:  Today: 56/42, Tuesday: 67/52, Wednesday: 71/59, Thursday: 68/49, Friday: 57/44

HAZARDOUS WEATHER: Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop along and ahead of

a cold front Wednesday afternoon across north central Texas, southeast Oklahoma, and western Arkansas. These showers and thunderstorms will spread into northeast Texas, southwest Arkansas, and possibly northwest Louisiana, Wednesday night, and across the remainder of the region Thursday in advance of the front, and associated upper level disturbance as it lifts northeast across the lower Mississippi Valley. Severe weather is not expected with these thunderstorms given the limited instability in place, although brief heavy rainfall may accompany some of the stronger storms along the front. The front may stall out Thursday night along the Texas and Louisiana coast, and provide the focus for overrunning rainfall along and north of the front Friday into next weekend.
