EARLY FRONT TRIGGERS RAIN

Posted: Updated:

A cold front moved through central Louisiana early Sunday. Rain and a few thunderstorms accompanied the front and a chilly wind followed the front southeastward.

Because temperatures fell behind the front, the max temps were observed between 1AM and 7AM with readings in the 60s. In fact, Natchez, Miss. registered the highest temperature with an early morning high of 70 degrees. Temperatures dropped into the 40s and 50s behind the front during the late morning, afternoon, or evening.

The cold front triggered rain and a few thunderstorms as it moved through central Louisiana. The heaviest rain fell generally along and near a Many to Natchez, Miss. line. Radar indicates peak amounts may have reached 1-2 inches. In fact, Bellwood in southwest Natchitoches Parish measured 1.23 inches. Esler Field reported 1.01 inches.

Scattered rain will continue off and on into Monday as the jetstream continues to ride over the cool dome of air.
