Windy, Rainy & Cold

Posted: Updated:

It's nearly 40 degrees colder this morning compared to our afternoon record high of 84 degrees set Tuesday. As the front passed though, showers and storms moved along with that front. This morning we're looking at widespread rains with some moderate to heavy downpours and temperatures in the mid 40s. If you like what you're waking up to today, you're going to love the next few days. A cold dome of high pressure will continue to push southward covering most of the eastern U.S., while the upper pattern will remain active from southwest to northeast, bringing additional rains through the end of the week. Expect up to two inches of rain between now and Friday.


Temperatures won't be changing much over the next few days, and this includes our nighttime lows. We'll hover in the 40s day and night until we get some clearing toward the weekend allowing lows at night to dip into the 30s. Winds will be brisk keeping wind chills in the 30s. Small craft advisories are posted for the offshore waters and a wind advisory is in effect along the coastal parishes. Some winds could gust up to 30 mph on land and up to 40 Knots offshore.

Cold temperatures will stick around even through the weekend, although with clearing we should see afternoon highs struggling into the 60s. Overnight lows will drop into the 30s with frost or even a possible light freeze over the northern sections Saturday night and Sunday night.
