Post-frontal clouds and light rain moved through much of central Louisiana during the wee hours of the morning. Only a few hundreths of an inch occurred at Natchez, Miss., Jonesville, Leesville, Fairfield, and Winnfield.
The weather pattern will change again Thursday as a southwesterly wind blows in response to another front that will move through Thursday night.
