Your 7 Day Forecast

Updated:

Another weak cold front will move into Southwest Louisiana this evening with little to no change expected in our weather pattern.  So tonight will be warm with temperatures in the 60s and we could see another round of fog Friday morning.  Rain chances are only about 10 now through early Friday as the cold front moves into SW LA.  This is very similar to what occurred Tuesday morning when that cold front moved into SW LA.  So while I cannot rule out an isolated shower or two, most of us will not see any rain at all! 

Friday and Saturday looks to be a carbon copy of the last few days with a mix of sun and clouds and high temperatures in the low 80s. 

As I have mentioned all week, a storm system will develop over the Rocky Mountain region this weekend and will gradually move east across the country.  This will cause an increase in clouds on Sunday and we could see a few very isolated showers, so I am placing a 20% chance of rain in the forecast.  Rain chances increase to 40% on Monday and Tuesday as scattered showers and thunderstorms look likely ahead of a strong cold front. 

There is a chance that some of the storms could turn strong to severe, but this is still several days away and it is too early to put much emphasis on when and where severe may occur.  Stay tuned to KPLC through the weekend for more specifics on this potential threat as we get closer to next week. 

A cold front will move through on Tuesday with cooler weather for the middle of next week!
