Chilly and Cloudy Today

Chief Meteorologist Carl Arredondo and the 10pm Thursday weather

Dave Nussbaum - WWL-TV Morning Meteorologist

A cold front will move through today.  It will be cloudy and colder with a few showers possible, so keep that umbrella handy with your warm coat.  High temperatures will only be in the lower 50s.  Tonight will become partly cloudy and chilly with lows in the mid 30s north and some frost.  South of the lake will be in the lower 40s.  Bundle up! 

The weekend will start out dry, but it will end very stormy.  Saturday will be mostly cloudy and cool with highs in the upper 50s.  The old cold front will retreat back north as a warm front on Sunday.  This will make it much warmer and more humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Some of the storms could be strong to possibly severe.  SPC has put all of SE Louisiana in a Marginal Risk for severe weather.  The main threat would be isolated damaging winds and possibly a tornado or two.  Some rain could be heavy at times.  High temperatures will be in the mid 70s.  

Next Week Outlook:  The front will linger over us on Monday and Tuesday with more heavy rain and storms.  Rain totals of 1 to 3 inches will be possible between Sunday and Tuesday Night.  Since it has been so dry lately, and the rain will be gradual, we should be able to handle the rain amounts.  Some minor flooding issues will be possible.  It stays warm with highs in the 70s.  A cold front will move through on Tuesday Night/Wednesday and this will clear out the rain.  It will only drop the temperatures a few degrees with highs in the mid 60s on Wednesday.  We stay dry on Thursday before more rain returns on next Friday.
