5:30PM Wednesday: Storms this evening and then cold again

Weather

We will be watching a line of rain and storms as it moves through the area later this evening as another strong storm system sweeps across the state.

Right now the line does not look that impressive out to the west.

However temperatures are in the 30s out there so the severe weather threat is very low. As this line moves east it will move into some of the warmer temperatures around the area. Look for locally heavy rain as this moves through.

There is a small portion of the area, mainly south and east of New Orleans, that could see a strong to severe storm. The question will be is there enough instability to produce a stronger storm since the dynamics in the atmosphere are there. If a storm can grow strong enough an isolated tornado or damaging wind gust would be possible, along with hail.

After this system moves out Thursday morning highs will only be in the 40s the next couple of days. Look for more freezing temperatures by Thursday and Friday nights.
