A couple of items from my view at the forecast desk:
TROPICAL STORM BERYL
Beryl's transition to tropical storm is complete and aircraft recon tells us that the storm has strengthened. Beryl is heading to a landfall on the north Florida coast tonight with 65 mph winds and welcome rain. Beryl will make it as far west as Panama City and then turn north and northeast. This keeps Beryl out of our forecast in central Louisiana.
LATE WEEK FRONT
I'm really excited about the prospect of a cold front late Thursday or early Friday. A disturbance in the jetstream will grab some of that cool air from the western U.S. and push it toward central Louisiana. The front will meet an unstable atmosphere so at least scattered showers and thunderstorms should result. A more organized event is possible, but it's too early to tell.
High temperatures will hold in the 80s for a few days and lows at night will fall into the 60s and the 50s. That's a nice way to begin June!
Have a safe Memorial day.
