As an upper level trough begins to weaken as it moves toward the eastern United States, the associated cold front is currently limping through Louisiana and is practically stationary. Expect clouds as well as rain to stay with us into the morning hours. As this weak front finally begins to fizzle out, we should see our rain chances normalize. We were not cooled down by this front, but a true cold front is expected to make its way through the area by Friday or Saturday. With this we can expect high rain chances as well as a dramatic drop in temperature and humidity. This will be our first true taste of Autumn. Expect rain chances to stay moderate through Tuesday and normalize heading into Wednesday as moisture continues to hang around the area.
