Another chilly start across the region. Skies are generally clear, with the exception of some high cloudiness over centeral and northern Louisiana. Temperatures are bottoming out in the 30s over most areas, even some lower 30s in central Louisiana. The air mass remains very dry, so as the day progresses, we’ll see those temperatures rising quickly to more comfortable levels.
The ridge of high pressure will be pushing eastward today, and light southerly winds will move in. Temperatures will run in the mid 60s today under sunny skies. Tonight, will be cool, but not as cold as the previous two mornings, lows will run in the 40s. Expect more sunshine Saturday and Sunday with highs both days near 70 degrees.
Next week, clouds will return with a chance for showers Monday and Tuesday. The upper levels will get more active allowing for a good chance for rain Wednesday into early Thanksgiving. Check in early next week, especially if you have travel plans closer to the mid week. Any travel along the Gulf Coast or much of the south this weekend shouldn’t have any weather worries.
