Fast Moving Storm

The new Drought monitor came out tonight and still has parts of SE LA & MS in moderate to severe drought.   Tonight’s Southern Soaker should help knock down that problem as rainfall amounts of 1-3”+ are quite common.  This is a fast moving system and all of the heavy rains will pull away after midnight.  Unfortunately. The upper disturbance will not move to our east until late Friday night resulting in a cloudy, breezy & cold day with leftover morning showers.  Sunshine returns for Saturday & should be around for 4-5 days.   You’ll need the heavier weather gear for Friday & Saturday before Sunday warms to 60+.  That mild trend will continue for most of next week with no new Arctic Blast in sight.


There is a strong storm that will turn into a Nor’Easter (same system over us tonight) and The Weather Channel has gone nuts over…”bombogenesis”…surprised they haven’t called it a “Superstorm” yet!   Just looks like it will stay far enough off the East Coast to not cause major problems except for air travel.    I’ll salute them if their heavy snow prediction verifies.   That’s the beauty of forecasting.  Usually you know fairly quickly if you’re right or wrong.   Predicting 30,50,100 years from now?  Can’t verify.
