COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY UNTIL NOON FRIDAY. Orleans, St Bernard, & Hancock county can expect tides 1-2' above normal and may cause some coastal flooding.
An area of low pressure has formed in the Western Gulf of Mexico and will track across the Central Gulf tonight. This give us a 40-50% chance for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms over SE LA overnight. A few heavy downpours are possible. Lows will be around 60.
The low will move SE of Louisiana on Good Friday, but the wrap around clouds and showers will still move over our area. We will be partly to mostly cloudy with a 20% chance for showers during the afternoon. It will be warmer with highs in the lower 70s.
All rain will come to an end on Friday Night with lows in the mid 50s.
Easter Weekend weather is shaping up to be very nice. We will have partly cloudy skies each day with highs in the mid to upper 70s, and lows in the 50s north of the lake and 60s south of the lake.
