After a Cool Monday, Temps Warm Up to Thanksgiving

A warmer and wetter pattern looks to set up from the middle to end of the week

NEW ORLEANS — An early morning cold front brought back our taste of Fall weather with afternoon temps staying in the 60s and below normal! Unfortunately, this isn's going to last. In fact, Tuesday will be warmer and more humid. A chilly night under clear skies and temps in the 40s and 50s. Back to the mid 70s Tuesday and more humid thanks to winds from the SE. An approaching cold front will trigger about a 60% chance for showers and storms Wednesday with a marginal (1 of 5) risk for severe weather north of the LA/MS line. What had appeared to be a promising cool-down for Thanksgiving doesn't appear that way. The upper trough will lift north and the front will either barely more through or dissipate over the area. Either way the cooler air looks to remain to our north. So warm and mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 70s on Thanksgiving. A flow from the SW aloft will keep clouds and some spotty to scattered showers around in to Friday. Models indicating a much stronger upper trough to trigger more rain into the weekend, around 70-80%, and a colder airmass reaching the central US. That in turn could bring some of the coldest air of the season our way to begin next week. Not much faith in the long-range forecast as the current La Nina pattern we're under tends to keep the coldest air well north of us. We'll see.
