Cloudy Skies & Not As Warm

Posted: Updated:

Thursday, December 6


There is a LPS (Low Pressure System) that is off the Gulf Coast and lingering over the Northern Gulf of Mexico. A Weak ridge of high pressure over Georgia is slowly building west and a developing LPS in the Southern Plains will begin to gain strength during the next couple of days.

The LPS that is off of the Gulf Coast is bringing "Return Moisture" over our area. This is creating a lot of heavy cloud cover. The cloud cover is expected to begin dissipating later today. Due to the abundant cover, we will see temperatures much lower than previously expected. I have brought temperatures down to a more Seasonable range and into the 60's. Cloud cover typically keeps temperatures moderated (Cooler during the day and warmer at night).
Clearing will begin late this afternoon and through the evening. Skies will remain a mixture of sunshine and cloud cover through Saturday afternoon. Rain chances will stay low for the next couple of days as a warming trend sets up during the next couple of days.
The weekend will bring with it, gradually increasing clouds and rising rain chances as a cold front moves into the area and approaches Central Louisiana.

For the rest of the day,
Due to the cloud cover, afternoon temperatures will remain seasonable for December 6th. Cloudy skies will remain abundant and will begin slowly decreasing later this evening. Rain chances will stay low and highs will be in the 60's with a Light wind out of the Southeast.
Overnight, skies will be fair to partly cloudy with a cool feel and a light & variable wind.

For the rest of the 7day planner
Skies will gradually clear out through Saturday, becoming mostly sunny to partly cloudy for some parts of the area. The later part of the weekend will bring with it, increasing clouds and rising rain chances in advance of our next weather making system. This front will knock overnight lows back to the freezing mark.

THIS AFTERNOON...Mostly cloudy skies with some clearing, becoming partly cloudy. Highs in the 60-s. A light and variable wind.

THURSDAY NIGHT...Mostly cloudy with off/on light rain or drizzle possible. Lows 50-56. Light & Variable wind.
