A cold front is moving across the region this morning and will slide toward the east out of Louisiana later today. Along the front we’ve seen areas of rain, including a few thundershowers. There have been pockets of heavier rain, but those downpours haven’t been lasting too long. No severe weather is expected.
As the front moves away, the thundershowers and rainfall will gradually taper off. We could still see pockets of light rain and drizzle into the afternoon. Winds will shift to the north, and could be gusty this afternoon. Combined with temperatures hovering in the mid to upper 50s, it will be a chilly one.
It appears skies will remain cloudy overnight into Saturday. Lows tonight should dip into the upper 40s with highs Saturday in the mid to upper 50s. A few sprinkles are possible through Saturday morning with drier conditions expected for Sunday. Sunny skies should return by the end of the weekend, and an extended dry period will linger into the early part of the work week. Expect temperatures Sunday to reach the lower 60s. Next week’s temperatures should be at or slightly below normal with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s.
