NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Sunday was another very nice day with an abundance of sunshine dominating the weather across Southeast Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. High pressure centered over Tennessee brought mostly clear skies, dry air and cool temperatures for the weekend. A few changes are starting to take shape as winds become more easterly and southeasterly. This evening, warmer, more moist air will begin to move into the region in earnest ahead of the next approaching weather system.
Another roller coaster ride is on the way for next week. A deep upper level trough and winds ahead of the associated cold front will usher in windy and warm weather on Monday. A wind advisory will go into effect Monday morning and the Storm Prediction Center in Norman Oklahoma places almost the entire area under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms late in the day Monday and continues the slight chance into Tuesday. Just to our north and west most of central Louisiana is under an enhanced risk. Rain chances continue into Tuesday and Wednesday with a front allowing a strong push of cold air to move in for the end of the week. Some freezing temperatures may be possible again late next week on the North Shore.
