The last few days we’ve cruised through some spring like weather but that cruise is headed straight off a cliff with a front moving through Thursday evening.

Before the front arrives, however, the warm, muggy spring pattern will continue for the first half of Thursday feeling very similar to the last several days.

Temperatures will still make a run into the upper 70s even with a steady increase in clouds and winds gusting in from the south around 8-12 mph.

This will be the stage that is set for the arrival of the next cold front which will announce itself with a round of showers that moves through the area.

Timing of the showers will be around 5:00 to 7:00 pm and a fairly thin line means that the rain won’t last all that long or be that intense.

As soon as those showers move on the winds will start to whip up from the north and become more blustery and temperatures will start to plummet.

Hopefully no one has put away the winter jacket just yet as the wind chill through the day on Friday will sit in the 30s from the morning into the afternoon.

Clouds will be locked in place so sunshine is going to struggle to break through even after the front passes and we could end up being cloudy into Saturday as well.

Winds will slowly relax Saturday and start to become more southerly which will start to pull temperatures back up above average Sunday afternoon.

This seesaw weather is pretty typical for Louisiana this time of year and even next week it looks like it’ll be up and down once again.
