Mostly clear sky overnight with dry air still in place means we will cool down significantly. Expect some locations to once again get down to near freezing north and west of Lake Pontchartrain. More protected areas stay in the upper 30s near 40 to start the morning.
We’ll need to stay bundled up as cold and dry air hang around for the next couple of days. Lots of sunshine makes for some nice afternoons, but temperatures remain chilly with highs in the 50s during the day. Overnight lows drop into the 30s both sides of Lake Pontchartrain.
The well advertised winter storm moves in to the region with clouds picking up Sunday afternoon keeping high temperatures in the 40s. The very dry atmosphere moistened up through the day with rain building from west to east.
Sunday should start off nicely and cold once again with areas north and west of Lake Pontchartrain close to a light freeze and the rest of the region in the mid-30s to near 40. Clouds move in during the day will help keep daytime highs a bit colder.
After a cold start Sunday turned out to be a lovely day with plenty of sunshine and afternoon highs just around or even a degree or two below long term averages in the low 60s. Monday will be another nice, but cold day as many return to work and school after the holiday break.
The storm prediction center placed the entire region under the level 2 risk for severe storms Thursday afternoon and evening. Moisture continues to increase and expect warm afternoons and mild overnight temperatures ahead of a high energy storm system.
We are in the calm before the storm so to speak. We can expect a couple of quiet days with mild and muggy conditions as we await our next big weather system set to move in on New Year’s Eve. As it’s still a few days out there is still some uncertainty in timing and strength.
Temperatures rebounded for the afternoon with highs in the upper 60s and even a few low 70s. The start of the week will remain mild with overnight lows close to long term averages in the low to middle 40s both sides of the lake.
The best way to check out what some are calling the "Christmas Kiss." All you need do is find a clear view of the southwestern horizon. Professor of Astronomy and Physics at UNO Dr. Greg Seab said, “It's a beautiful sight."
It was cloudy and warm on Sunday ahead of another cold front in a very active pattern sitting across Southeast Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. A quick moving line of showers brings rain ahead of the change in winds.
Rain pushed through early in the day and while most of the area will see a break through the early part of Sunday expect clouds to linger into the afternoon as another low pressure system pushes across the area. Expect low clouds and fog with mild overnight temperatures in the 50s.
Thursday and most of Friday we will still see sun. Overnight lows will be warmer as well in the low to mid 50s. Clouds increase late Friday into Saturday, but the rain should stay away until Saturday morning.
Dry dew points still in place and relatively light winds under those clear skies will allow temperatures to drop again into at least the mid-30s overnight. Wednesday will see plenty of sunshine and warm into the middle to upper 60s for the afternoon.
We started off very cold again this morning with temperatures falling into the 30s across most of the area. With a sunny start, highs will reach the mid-60s this afternoon. A few clouds and an easterly wind will develop throughout the day helping to keep temperatures less cold overnight as well.
A freeze warning is in effect for most of the area including the Mississippi Gulf Coast, parishes north of Lake Pontchartrain, the river parishes and northern Terrebonne and Lafourche. The metro area and coast should stay above freezing, but may see some frost.
An area of low pressure coming together along the Louisiana coast will trigger another round of storms starting early in the day on Sunday. Exactly where the low forms will play a big role in how stormy it is across the area.
There’s not a huge temperature drop, but enough of a difference to notice by Monday afternoon with highs a good 6 to 8 degrees lower than the upper 70s seen on Sunday. Tuesday morning will likely be the coldest of the week.
Expect another pleasant day on Sunday with mild temps in the mid-70s to low 80s. A cold front moves in for Monday, but there is very dry air in place with little opportunity for more moisture it should pass through dry.
