Low pressure continues to spin over Louisiana and will slowly move eastward today. We’re still on the front side of the low, therefore southerly winds will prevail this morning, shifting more westerly by this afternoon. Initial showers this morning will drift in from the south, then a bit of a break from any rain around midday. Afterward, wrap around moisture coming in from the northwest will generate additional showers and storms later this afternoon. Drier air is expected to pull in overnight allowing skies to clear, although some fog is possible toward the early morning hours of Tuesday. Temperatures will remain mild, in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Rainfall amounts should stay less than 1/2 inch for most areas.


Tuesday looks pleasant as sunshine makes a big return. Expect afternoon temperatures to rise into the lower 80s with sunny skies. Lower humidity should make outdoor conditions ideal. Skies will remain clear overnight Tuesday night with lows near 60. Wednesday and Thursday should be sunny, with highs both days in the lower 80s.

Toward the weekend, another system will move into the region. Clouds will return for Friday, with scattered showers possible Saturday. Palm Sunday could be stormy.
