Expect warm temperatures to stick around through the evening and overnight. Low temperatures will only drop into the 70s through early Tuesday morning.
Heading into the day Tuesday, humidity will remain elevated as moisture pulls into the region from the Gulf ahead of our next cold front. As the front approaches, rain chances rise to about 50 percent.
The latest models show a thin, broken line of showers and storms moving through between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. with isolated rain activity before the main line. Some of the storms could bring gusty winds and localized heavy downpours.
The Storm Prediction Center has outlined most of Southeast Louisiana and South Mississippi with a “Marginal Risk” for severe weather, which is level 1 out of 5 on their scale.
As the line of storms moves through, winds are expected to pick up to around 20 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 35 mph. It may be a good idea to secure any loose outdoor objects (like Halloween decorations) tonight.
Sunny skies return by the next morning along with cooler and drier air. Highs will top out in the low to mid 70s both Wednesday and Thursday. Our next cold front (and rain chance) will come Friday into Saturday.
