Discussion
A LPS moved through Central Louisiana, this morning. There was a lot of shower and thunderstorm activity associated with this system as it crossed over our viewing area. Though there was a slight risk for severe weather, No watches, warnings or advisories were issued this morning. The bulk of this system did bring us some much needed rainfall and continued to push to the South East and into the NE GoM (Gulf of Mexico). Today's High temperature was reached early this morning as this front was moving through.
After a cold front moves through an area, a much colder and more dense air mass moves in. This is called CAA (Cold Air Advection). As the cold air moves over an area, daytime heating is over powered and suppressed. So in reality, the actual temperature doesn't see much of an increase. Rather, it will be steady for most of the midday hours, before falling as the sun begins to go down.
That is what is happening today. So, our overnight low will be at midnight, tonight.
  
For the rest of the day,
In the wake of this most recent system, expect to see low rain chances, followed by clearing skies this afternoon. Winds will stay moderate, gusty and out of the North. We will also continue to see the temperature drop throughout the day.  Expect mostly cloudy skies, becoming partly cloudy with cooling temperatures and rain chances remaining low. Overnight we will see skies become clear with lows reaching the lower to mid 30's.
 
For the rest of the 7day planner
After this front pushes completely out of the area, a dry, mid-week, cold air mass will move overhead. Rain chances will return during the PM hours on Thursday as low level energy begins to allow a southerly flow, off the gulf, to develop. The next piece of energy will move through the area Thursday night and early Friday.
Temperatures will drop into the 30's Tuesday and Wednesday night.

THIS AFTERNOON...Mostly cloudy skies with clearing and cool. Temperatures will stay near steady and in the 50s. Off/on drizzle or light rain remain possible but very low chances. N/NE wind 8-16 mph.

TUESDAY NIGHT...Continued clearing and colder. Lows 35-41. North wind 2-10mph, becoming calm.
