Temperatures were quite chilly this morning with lows in the 30s and frost was quite widespread across most of Southwest Louisiana. But a warming trend has begun with southerly winds slowly bringing back our humidity. That means tonight will be much warmer with lows in the mid 40s north of I-10, near 50 along I-10, and mid to upper 50s at the coastline Thursday morning. By the afternoon our highs will rebound into the low 70s with some clouds and maybe a few isolated showers. The chance for rain is only 20% so I do not expect to see much rain.
Friday and Saturday will be even warmer with highs near 80 degrees and lows in the upper 50s to low 60s and despite plenty of clouds the chance of rain will be less than 20%. We could see a few more showers by Sunday and Monday as another upper level disturbance moves over SW LA, but the chance of rain will remain low at 20% and the rain should be fairly isolated. The beginning of next week looks warm with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s.
Almost all of the computer models are now in agreement that our chance of rain is very low now through next week so this is why I have reduced or removed the chances for rain, but with that said a few isolated showers are possible any of the next few days.
