A few of these storms could have the potential of being strong to severe. A Slight (2 out of 5) to Enhanced (3 out of 5) Risk for severe weather has been issued from Baton Rouge north into SW Mississippi. The primary concern will be hail the size of quarters to golf balls. The secondary threat will be strong damaging wind. The cold front will push through early Monday morning shortly after midnight helping to sweep out the storms and humidity.

We start the work week after Easter with low humidity and slightly cooler temperatures. It won’t last long with a warming trend beginning by Wednesday afternoon. Humidity will return by Thursday. On Thursday a weak cold front will just clip the area. We don’t expect much change to the daily weather pattern with this front. It may squeeze out a spotty shower or two.
