As the next cold front approaches, it’ll bring a line of strong to severe thunderstorms Sunday night into Monday morning. The primary threat from this line will be strong, damaging wind gusts, however a weak tornado cannot be ruled out. The highest threat will remain north of the I-10/I-12 corridor, mostly in north and central Louisiana across through the north shore and into central and southern Mississippi.
TOMORROW MORNING (MONDAY):
This will not be a widespread severe weather event. The cold front will get us back to slightly below normal temperatures for the week, however will be nothing close to the recent Arctic outbreak the region just experienced.
Looking ahead, no deep freezes are in the forecast through the end of the month into February. However, long range signals do suggest we may be a month or away from another major Arctic blast. Possibly a frigid Mardi Gras? Hopefully the next blast waits until after. Then, before you know it, we’ll be dealing with Heat Advisories and Tropical Storm Watches.
