Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Once again this morning, there were areas of patchy fog throughout SE LA/SW MS, but traveling across the Atchafalaya, the fog became much more widespread and dense; as a result, a Dense Fog Advisory stayed in effect throughout the early commute.  Today, another unseasonably warm spring day ahead - mostly sunny skies, light SE winds and a high of 84° (today's record high, 86°!); overnight, increasing clouds, a low of 64° - tomorrow, look for a sun/cloud mix, isolated showers (20% coverage) and a high in the lower 80°s.  But, it still appears that the best rain chances hold off until Saturday, when a cold front moves closer to the region ... showers and thunderstorms are likely (70% coverage) with the Storm Prediction Center continuing to highlight the "slight potential" for severe weather. Wet weather may be the rule for the majority of the day Saturday - with the overall widespread rains ending by evening  - returning to dry and mild spring weather again Sunday. - Diane Deaton, WAFB Storm Team
