9:45PM Thursday: Warming into the weekend


A nice night is on the way with low humidity and cool temperatures. It won’t be as cold as last night but we will still see low 50s to the north and upper 50s to around 60 south.

Unfortunately, another severe weather risk looks to develop late Friday into the start of the weekend.

The Storm Prediction Center has introduced a Marginal Risk(Level 1 out of 5) for severe storms on Friday

A Slight Risk(Level 2 out of 5) for severe thunderstorms Friday night-Saturday morning.

Two rounds of storms possible, round one of scattered storms with the warm front late Friday & second round late Friday night-Saturday morning.

All forms of severe weather appear possible including gusty winds, isolated large hail, isolated tornado.

Based on latest model guidance, it appears the heaviest rain will stay north of southeast Louisiana with the greatest severe risk north of I-10/I-12. In fact, the best ingredients for any severe potential looks to be north of the LA/MS border.
