Severe Weather Here Next Monday ?

We have reached the time of the year when our secondary severe weather season begins.  The Fall is the time of the year when strong cold fronts collide with warmer air off the Gulf.   It usually isn't as active as the Spring season, but can and has produced some small tornadoes over SE LA & coastal MS.  Looking ahead, our current cool spell will last another 3 days before a warming trend begins Friday PM.  We'll be back 80+ over the weekend before a strong upper air system coupled with a significant cold front sweeps across the South on Monday.   That's still many days out so trying to pinpoint the timing (morning, afternoon or evening ) is way too early.   This system will bring much needed rainfall to the drought areas of the central plains along with a widespread potential for severe storms.  Stay tuned!

In the short term, you'll need sweaters and jackets as nights will dip into the 30s North Shore and 40s South Shore, with daytime highs 65-70.  Enjoy !
