An upper level disturbance kept Southwest Louisiana in the clouds most of the day Thursday, but as expected the bulk of the rain stayed offshore with only a few isolated showers over land. These have moved away and we will likely see some breaks in the clouds overnight. I still expect some clouds so we will call it partly cloudy tonight with temperatures in the mid to upper 50s along and north of I-10 and low 60s at the coastline. Friday will be warmer thanks to some breaks in the clouds with highs in the mid to upper 70s. The chance of rain is only about 10% on Friday with only a few extremely isolated showers possible in the afternoon; I expect most of SW LA to remain rain free.
The weekend forecast looks the same with highs near 80 and lows in the 60s, but rain looks unlikely other than one or two very isolated showers. Easter will begin warm with temperatures in the low 60s at sunrise and temperatures will steadily rise through the day with little to no chance of rain! The same weather pattern will continue into next week so plan on a warm week ahead.
