KNOE Thursday Night Forecast
with Chief Meteorologist Matt Posgai
We’re staying sunny and rain-free for two more days before the flood gates open up starting on Sunday. Rain chances are set to return with storms likely on Sunday. The rain chances will be triggered by a cold front that is expected to stall across southern Louisiana early Monday and keep storms in the forecast until another cold front can clear everything out on Wednesday. Severe threats are possible, but they’re likely going to be limited to flooding due to all the rain-cooled air. Right now, storm strength looks to be limited as our atmosphere attempts to transition more toward a Summer-like pattern.
Overnight: Clear skies will stay with us overnight as a light breeze allows for quickly falling temperatures with lows in the low to mid 50s.
Friday: Sunshine and highs in the mid 70s will be sticking around for one more day before heat and moisture return on Saturday.
Saturday: Our next storm system is set to arrive on Sunday, so we’ll have partly cloudy skies and highs in the low to mid 80s for the first half of the weekend.
Sunday through Wednesday: A cold front is set to arrive on Sunday, stall to our south on Monday before returning as a warm front, then move back south as another cold front arrives late Tuesday into Wednesday. Highs will depend on where the front stalls, but we’re expecting 80s on Sunday and then 70s for the rest of the week. Storm chances are 80% for Sunday, 60% on Monday, 80% on Tuesday, & 60% on Wednesday. While we can’t rule out severe weather, threats look limited to flooding at this point. Rain totals from all four days are likely to be between 2-4″ with some isolated higher amounts possible as well.
Thursday: While the breeze will kick up a bit throughout the day, we’ll finally have a break from the rain. Expect sunny skies and highs in the 70s.
