10/26 – Brantly’s “Sunny Today, Stormy Tomorrow” Tuesday Morning Forecast
A backdoor cold front was sinking southwestward passed southwest of Baton Rouge and New Orleans since midnight. Backdoor front will gradually slip off the coast today, and should produce a fairly nice day. We continue to see a severe weather and heavy rain threat Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night with much cooler weather to follow.
The line of storms will be about 3-6 hours ahead of the actual frontal passage, with the front not clearing our area until after midnight Wednesday night. Any heavy precipitation should cut off at that time, and some clearing is likely prior to sunrise Thursday.
For temps, highs through the period will range in the mid to upper 70s. For low temperatures tonight, we will see a downward trend from last night, bottoming out from around 50 for inland areas to around 60 along the coast. On Tuesday night, mid to upper 50s are expected south of I-10, with low 50s off to the north and east.
