We are a little warmer this morning as the winds shift to the east. Clouds will build back over us and we could see a few showers for the morning commute. Then the old cold front will drift north as a warm front today. This will increase the humidity and spread scattered showers/storms over us this afternoon and evening. High temperatures will be back in the mid 80s. A few showers will be possible tonight. It will be muggy with lows in the 70s on both sides of the lake.
The warm front will continue to move northward on Tuesday into central Mississippi. We will be very warm and humid with scattered showers and storms. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s.
A strong cold front will move through on Wednesday with more showers and storms. We will be a little cooler with highs in the lower 80s.
Wonderful weather briefly returns on Thursday! We start the day with temperatures in the 50s north and 60s south. Then expect plenty of sunshine and high temperatures only in the mid 70s. Friday morning starts cool and pleasant with temperatures in the 50s north and 60s south again. We start to warm back up on Friday as the winds shift from the N back to the east. A few showers will also be possible later in the day. High temperatures climb back into the lower 80s.
Weekend Outlook: We continue to warm up as some tropical moisture moves up our way thanks to a weak low in the western Gulf. At this time, it is not expected to develop into anything, but it will bring us scattered showers and storms all weekend. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s each day.
Tropics: The tropics are getting active once again with one named storm, a possible 2nd system later today and a few weak waves and lows.
Tropical Storm Melissa continues to weak and move to the north Atlantic. It is expected to become a post-tropical remnant low today.
Invest 94 off the coast of Africa has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression in the next day or so. It will turn to the north and stay out in the far eastern Atlantic. If it becomes a tropical storm it would get the name Nestor.
There is a broad area of low pressure over the NW Caribbean. It will move over Central America over the next few days. Then it will emerge in the Bay of Campeche on Wednesday. At that time, conditions are more favorable for development and there is a low chance for it to try and develop.
Lastly, there is a tropical wave in the central Atlantic. This is moving west and battling strong wind shear. It is not expected to develop as it heads toward the Lesser Antilles.
We'll be monitoring all of these this week. Right now, there are no big threats for Louisiana.
