Stormy AM...Severe Staying North?

NWS is saying 3 tornadoes have touched down tonight. It's the 1st severe weather outbreak for 2009. I'm told at this same date last year, the tornado counts was 289 ! It appears the stronger upper level winds will remain across central & north Louisiana and that's where the strongest storms should stay. My thinking is the line of storms will be much weaker the farther south one goes with the arrival time being between 7-10 AM. By noontime we may start to see clearing skies and with west winds and drier air, temperatures should climb well into the mid to upper 70s. Thusday will see lots of sun but another upper system approaches on Friday bringing back PM rain chances. Saturday looks dry & cooler with another upper system coming for late Sunday into early Monday. Timing of these systems is crucial for this weekend's parades. Jefferson Parish's Family Gras kicks off Friday night and continues into Sunday. With many notable singers & a craft fair, they need dry weather. Stayed tuned. Colder air returns for next week.

The GFS appears to be trending toward keeping us sloppy durring the weekend as the Euro has been saying for the past couple of days.Rain may be locally heavy in some areas friday as the warm front moves back north toward our area.
