10/29 – Rob Knight’s Monday/Workweek Forecast
Fog season is upon us…with several locations experiencing lowered visibility this morning but patchy at best. This kind of fog can still be dangerous as traffic speeds differentiate quite a bit in and out of fog areas. Another cold front will move close to the area before stalling just to the northeast by late today.
This may set the stage for many locations to observe dense fog tonight if conditions can line up just right and it looks as if they will.
Another cold front will move into the area from the west Wednesday night into Thursday morning. The weather with the front including a squall line will begin to move into the Baton Rouge area around midnight and should spread eastward rather quickly afterwards. The front should be through the area by late Thursday morning or early afternoon bringing more dry cool air with it.
There will be the possibility of a few if not several severe thunderstorms along this line.
When…is the only parameter that is most elusive, but all modes of severe weather will be possible with this scenario with the greatest of these being straight line damaging winds.
