Wednesday, January 23
There is a Deep ridge of High Pressure that is extended over the Gulf Coast. A Strong Low Pressure System over the Great Lakes Region that is bringing a lot of extremely cold, Arctic air into two thirds of the nation. Otherwise, a cold front is pushing South and will Stall out just North of Louisiana (against the northern edge of the High Pressure Ridge). This front will weaken and become stationary over the Gulf Coast States, during the next couple of days.
This welcome streak of dry weather will continue for the next few days with seasonably warm temperatures and pleasant conditions as this ridge stays in place and continues to affect the Gulf Coast.
Some fog can be expected for the next few nights, due to a light and moist onshore flow. Rain chances begin to increase this weekend as a cold front approaches and stalls out over the area. A better chance for rain will be in store for us after the beginning of the work week. (as a deep trough digs into the area and moves through at the end of the 7day planner.
For the rest of the day,
Dry weather will continue to hang in through the day and overnight as this high continues to slowly move South. Winds will gradually pick up and swing to the SW. This will bring return-flow moisture tonight. Advection Fog will also return this evening due to the additional moisture.
The fog that we see overnight could be dense for some and will quickly burn off, tomorrow and be out of the area by 10am.
For the rest of the 7day planner
Clouds will begin increasing Thursday and Friday, as our next front moves into the area. This cold front will slow down and begin to stall out on Friday evening. It will bring us a fair chance for showers and thunderstorms by the time it makes it to Central Louisiana.
