Thursday, January 17
There is an old frontal boundary that is still moving out of the SE U.S. Otherwise, a deep ridge of high pressure is moving in, in the wake of this last system. There is also a weak system over the Northern Plains, moving toward the Great Lakes Region.
This morning, the last of the cloud cover moved out of Central Louisiana. The clouds are still over Mississippi and the system is bringing snow to areas outside of our state. Otherwise, a wintry mix and some sleet was reported in our area, yesterday. This morning Frozen rain was present, for many.
Colder and drier air is spilling in from the NW, behind this last system. This air mass is accompanied by a deep ridge of high pressure.
This ridge will remain in control of our forecast well into the weekend. This means: clear skies, a warming trend and no rain chances. Winds will taper off into the weekend and we will remain on the cool side for lows (in the lower to mid 30-s). Highs will be in the 50's with 60's showing up this weekend.
For the rest of the day,
Expect plenty of sunshine to remain the theme with highs in the 50's and no rain chances. Winds will be light to moderate and out of the North & West.
Overnight it will get cold again. With a light wind.
For the rest of the 7day planner
Expect, clear skies for a few days. Clouds will begin increasing on Sunday, in advance of our next front. It looks like this next system will be a DRY Canadian air mass. So, rain chances look to be low, at this time.
TODAY...Expect plenty of sunshine and warming temperatures. Highs 49-57. NW wind 5-15mph.
THURSDAY NIGHT...Clear skies and freezing temperatures. Lows 29-35. N/NE wind 2-8mph.
