Likely Rain Chances

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday, December 4

12:30pm

Overview
There is a LPS North of the NE U.S. that is stretched South through Jackson, MS, Lafayette, LA aned into Marine Point. A rich plume of moisture extends from the Gulf of Mexico well into the South Central U.S.  Elsewhere, a ridge of high pressure is slowly moving toward the East Coast.

Discussion
On the western edge of a High Pressure Ridge, this plume of moisture is continuing to pump warm, moist air into Louisiana. This area is in advance of an approaching cold front. This front will merge with a plume of moisture over our area and really increase rain chances for us. This is good, because we really need the rain. As this front moves toward our area, rain chances will continue to be on the rise. This system will slowly cross Central Louisiana during the overnight hours tonight and early morning hours on Wednesday.
In the wake of this system, an extreme temperature change is not expected. In fact, temperatures will only drop into the upper 60's for tomorrow. The average High temperature for this time of the year is 65. So, even after this front moves through temperatures will still be seasonably warm.
Temperatures will remain above average through the end of the 7day planner.
  
For the rest of the day,
Expect mostly cloudy to overcast skies with continued rising rain chances throughout the midday and afternoon hours. Peak rain chances will be this evening and tonight. No severe weather is expected during this event. However, a lot of rain is expected and some could see more than an inch of new rainfall during the next 24 hours.

For the rest of the 7day planner
This next front will push through overnight and will bring with it a very likely chance for rain. However, temps will not see much of a drop after it passes through.
Highs will fall into the upper 60's and lower to 70's but not for long. Temperatures will stay well above average for the remainder of the 7day planner.

THIS MORNING...Mostly cloudy to Broken cloud deck with patchy fog burning off and off/on drizzle. Temps will rise into the lower to mid 70s by Noon. S/SE wind 3-8 mph.

THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING...Cloudy with a 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms as a front approaches Central Louisiana. Highs in the mid to upper 70s. S/SW wind 8-16 mph.

TUESDAY NIGHT...Overcast with continued rain chances beginning to taper and become off/on light rain or drizzle. Turning a bit cooler. Lows in the 50s. N/NW wind 3-8 mph.
