Technically meteorological fall started on September 1st but any hint of cooler air has been non-existent across the Deep South.
Usually by this time of year, we have had one or two fronts that at the very least knock the humidity down but that just has not been the case this year.
Don’t fret, hints are showing up in long range models that the pattern is about to change. The strong Bermuda-Azores high that has kept the southern United States well above normal in temperatures will start to weaken as a parade of fronts slam into it over the next 7 days.
The first of those fronts arrives this weekend which could lead to a stormy period Saturday and Sunday so anyone with outdoor plans may want to keep a watchful eye to the sky. Although this front won’t totally make it to Louisiana it will set the stage for a much stronger front by the end of next week. That one could be the kicker for an upcoming overall cooler pattern.
