High pressure in Louisiana is keeping us sunny and dry through our Wednesday, and it will be our main weather player through the weekend as it slides to our south and east over the next couple of days. We will really start our nice warm up Thursday as winds will turn from the south and bring in much warmer air as highs could jump by as much as ten degrees from today to tomorrow.
Highs will return to the low 80s into the weekend as clouds begin to return, signaling the return of more moisture to the area. We will remain dry until Monday when our next system arrives.
Monday looks to be a rainy day with showers and storms across the area. It is still way to early to get into specifics, but we do look to see storms and we could see around an inch of rainfall from this system as it works through. By the time we hit Monday, area rivers should be able to handle any additional rainfall for the most part.
We will dry back out some point on Tuesday and return to sunshine by Wednesday as highs will again dip behind our next system but should return to the low to mid 70s by Wednesday.
