Strong to severe storms are possible this evening
A strong storm system will move through the state later today, increasing the chance of severe weather in south Louisiana for the first time in a while. Make sure you know your severe weather safety plans, turn on weather alerts, and download the Storm Station app to stay up to date on severe weather information.
Today tomorrow: A warm front is moving into the state early this morning which will cause temperatures to rise to near 80 degrees this afternoon. There will be intermittent showers during the daylight hours, but the chances of rain during the day remain fairly low. A much different story will be on display starting in the early evening hours. The timing so far has the best chance of seeing stronger storms starting around 5-6 p.m.; Which may affect your evening commute home.
A trailing cold front brings storms to southeast Louisiana tonight. This will be the metro area’s best chance to see storms, a few of which could be strong to severe. The Storm Prediction Center has placed our counties in Mississippi under a Level 3/5 risk for severe weather, where isolated severe storms are possible. We will likely see less severe weather in the south. However, Baton Rouge is under a Level 2/5 Severe Risk, where isolated instances of severe weather are possible. Winds appear to be the main concern, although we cannot rule out isolated tornadoes.
This system also offers a chance for some beneficial rain. A quick 1-2 inches will be possible in the evening and overnight storms.
Storm Station will be with you live and online from start to finish, sharing the latest information you need to know about this storm system.
the next: By Tuesday morning, we will dry out and the clouds will continue for the rest of the day. Thanks to the cold front, we will start to see cooler temperatures across the state. Below-average temperatures continue throughout the week, with Thanksgiving being the coolest day of the next seven days. Your turkey day may also be a bit wet. We are seeing another disturbance that could bring some rain to southern Louisiana on Thursday.

Tropical regions: A small area of low pressure in the central Caribbean Sea has a small chance of developing into a tropical system within the next few days. While we will be watching closely, environmental conditions do not support any significant development.
The other area we are monitoring is a non-tropical low pressure area that is expected to develop along a front over the central part of the Atlantic Basin over the next couple of days. It is possible that this system will separate from the front and gradually gain some tropical or subtropical characteristics during the latter part of this week while generally moving eastward across the central subtropical Atlantic.
