Morning storms move through, cooler weather on the way

Heavy storms moved through Southeast Louisiana overnight and early this morning.

Storm complexes were primarily focused on the Northshore; Tangipahoa, Washington, and northern St. Tammany (actually developing around Port Allen) as well as the coastal parishes starting around Morgan City and moving east.

The metro area was spared the heaviest, but the lightning show was impressive from the storms north and south. Hail was reported from both storm clusters, but flooding was more of an issue farther south due to the fact that as storms formed, they trained along the coastline.

Impressive lightning numbers, with the number of strikes every 15 minutes ranging in the thousands! All the morning storms developed along a surface boundary well ahead of a cold front.

As the worst of the weather pushes east, slightly cooler and less humid air will settle in for the Easter weekend beginning this evening!
