After a very nice start we will continue to see more moisture stream into the area on Monday. That will make it feel a bit more muggy and set the foundation for showers and storms to move in as we head into the rest of the week.
Sunday turned out spectacular with plenty of sunshine and feel good air in place. Monday will start out rather pleasant with comfortable morning temps in the low 60s and some 50s. It should stay mostly dry rain wise as well through the day, but by the afternoon high pressure will have shifted east.
Most of the day on Friday was fine with just a few spotty storms staying mostly off shore, but stronger weather moves in overnight. Hold on to your umbrella just in case as it will be possible to run into a downpour through the evening hours. It continues to stay warm and muggy.
The promised heat and humidity is settled across the region with dew points up around 70 degrees meaning there is plenty of moisture around to fuel showers. Most of the activity around today is fairly light and fast splash and dash variety.
Beautiful conditions stick around for Monday with plenty of sunshine, but it will be just a tad warmer with more humidity. Expect overnight lows to hold in the 50s for most with afternoon highs back in the 70s.
Only four varieties found in this area truly sting. The Pus Moth Caterpillar is the worse. “Some people describe it as a mullet because it has short hairs in the front and sort of long tapering hairs in the back,” said Lemann.
Most locations saw small rain totals with the cooler air moving in from northwest to the southeast. The temperatures overnight will be quite a bit cooler with lows a good 20 degrees lower in the upper 40s north of Lake Pontchartrain and 50s south.

Warm moist air is firmly settled over the region with a few showers continuing into the evening hours. Tuesday we can expect similar coverage with lots of clouds and warm temperatures. Low temperatures will be well above the average of 53 in the upper 60s and 70s and highs in the 80s.
A nice stretch of weather continues into the end of the week, but although we are keeping plenty of blue sky around it feels a little less comfortable. Temperatures overnight will not be as chilly with rising dew points into the 50s.
After a spectacular weekend we can expect the trend of pleasant conditions to continue. Monday morning will be the coolest of this latest stretch with overnight lows in the mid to upper 30s across the region.
Temperatures will start off in the upper 60s once again with overnight fog lingering into the morning commute. During the day expect an increase in showers ahead of a cold front that will slowly sink into the area.
The recent extreme winter weather could mean more storm cost added to power bills, but the Public Service Commission said in their February 24th, 2020 meeting that energy providers should pick up more of the cost.
