You’ll want to keep the umbrella close as scattered storms are likely today. Heavy rain, lightning, and brief, gusty winds are possible during the late morning and early afternoon. Highs will climb to near 90 for most, but those that receive rain early may not get out of the 80s.
Today will be a transition day as we get a little warmer and see a little more humidity. The center of a high pressure system that has been over us will move east, and we will see a return flow from the Gulf of Mexico.
Plan for a hot finish to the weekend with dry and sunny skies. Highs will be in the low 90s Sunday and Monday.Then, a rare, mid-June cold front will bring highs down the upper 80s for Tuesday and Wednesday. What will be most noticeable, though, will be the lower humidity!
Another scorcher is on tap with highs expected to reach the mid 90s this afternoon. Mostly dry skies are expected.Meanwhile, an area of low pressure is slowly trying to organize in the far southern Gulf of Mexico.
Hot and humid conditions will persist for the foreseeable future. A stray shower is possible but unlikely today. As a weak cold front sags toward the area on Friday, rain chances will increase to around 30%. That means most of the area will stay dry.
The next couple of days will be more of the same- hot, humid, and no rain. Starting Thursday, a cold front may stall just to our north, close enough to help spark a few showers and storms each day.Spotty afternoon storms will be possible each day into the weekend.
Hot, humid conditions will continue through the foreseeable future with high temperatures in the 90s. While dry skies and sunny conditions are expected through mid-week, more moisture will move into the area later in the week allowing for a return of pop-up storms.
The rest of the week will be sunny and seasonably hot. Temperatures will flirt with 90 into Friday but a good Gulf breeze will help temper things a bit.Less breeze and a strong hot area of high pressure will move right over Southeast Louisiana by Sunday and Memorial Day.
Temperatures will soar to near the 90° mark each afternoon for the rest of the week. This is technically above our average high of 86°, but it isn’t unusual to see these conditions around this time of year. The heat will really take off as we head into the Memorial Day weekend.
Rain will be heavy at times through the morning hours, then we’ll start drying out this afternoon. Due to heavy rain that has already fallen, many areas are at risk of flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through this afternoon.
After some overnight and early morning storms in the area, we will likely have a mostly dry stretch between mid-morning and early afternoon. After that, scattered rain and storms are possible again through the evening. Another round of heavy rain and strong storms is likely on Sunday.
Several rounds of stormy weather will impact the area through the weekend. The timing of these disturbances will be very difficult, so you should keep the umbrella close!One disturbance looks to arrive this afternoon and evening bringing a slight chance for severe storms and heavy downpours.
A few showers or storms are possible the next couple of days, but most areas will stay dry most of the time.As a cold front sags closer to Southeast Louisiana on Friday, rain chances will increase. Occasional rounds of showers and storms will be possible into the weekend.
