Rainy & Muggy

Posted: Updated:

Cloudy and foggy with a bit of drizzle and light rain to start your new week. Some thunder and lightning has been noted along the Gulf Coast, generally from Morgan City to New Orleans. This thunderstorm activity should continue moving eastward leaving the rest of us with gray skies and light rain. A stalled frontal boundary will be in control of our weather for the early part of the week. Expect clouds, occasional rainfall, combined with warm and muggy conditions. 

Most of the region is in the 60s with mid to upper 50s over central Louisiana. Visibility is nudging below 1/2 mile in many areas and a dense fog advisory is in effect until 9 am. Most of the fog will dissipate leaving cloudy skies. Expect temperatures to climb toward 70 degrees over most of the region with mid 60s over the far inland areas. Normal highs and lows for the week before Christmas are 64 and 44, so we'll definitely be above average today into the mid week. 

 

The front will stick around through at least Wednesday with individual disturbances moving eastward along the front. The upper pattern will stay active over the southern part of the United States keeping rounds of rain in the forecast. To our west, some severe weather could be possible by Tuesday. This would include areas from the Rio Grande Valley to the ArkLaTex region. Rain with a few areas of thunder will be more likely for Acadiana. Colder air will be spilling southward combining with the southern energy and another disturbance just moving onto the Pacific northwest coast. This will bring the potential for a decent winter storm from north Texas thought the Midwest and Great Lakes by the end of the week, just in time for the busy travel season. Stay updated with roadways and your flights this week.
