Thursday, November 29
There is a cold front that is stretched through the Great Lakes Region and into the Midwest. This front is weak and has a developing Low Pressure System over the Midwest that will take a couple of days to get it together. Elsewhere, an extensive ridge of High Pressure is anchored over much of the Eastern half of the nation and this feature will continue to influence our forecast in Central Louisiana.

Clear skies today will allow temperatures to warm into the upper 60's, which will be about 5 or so degrees warmer than yesterday. High pressure at the surface (over the Mid-Atlantic states) is expected to slowly drift to the East and off the coast of New England by Sunday.
What this means is that we will see GREAT weather throughout the rest of the week and into the weekend. Increasing clouds for the next couple of days with cover gradually becoming thicker. Slight rain chances will return to the planner closer to the beginning of the work week, ahead of our next front.
For the rest of the day,
Expect plenty of sunshine with a few clouds and a pleasant feel. Winds will be light and variable and we will have above seasonable temperatures.
Overnight, we will see temperatures into the 40's. So, not as cold as last night but chilly, nevertheless. Skies will be fair to partly cloudy with a light wind.
For the rest of the 7day planner
This next front with the beginning of the work week will be linear. That means a surface low is not expected to develop or move across the region. Also, the next rainfall event will only bring an accumulation of less than a half inch in any one location. THIS IS NOT GOOD. We are currently in somewhat of a drought for parts of our viewing area. So we need the rain and really need a front with a LPS to develop over Deep South TX and move into LA.
This would be a good rain maker for the region.
TODAY...Sunny skies and a cold start, becoming pleasant late this morning and through the afternoon. Highs 67-70. East, becoming SE wind 2-10 mph.
THURSDAY NIGHT...Fair to partly cloudy skies and not as cold. Lows 37-43. A Light wind out of the SE, becoming calm.
