12/10 – Brantly’s “Warm Night, Rain Tomorrow” Friday Evening Forecast
Well above the climate normal temperatures continue across our area as strong southerly flow persists at the surface. A few showers were hanging around earlier today, but have now dried up and we should stay dry through the evening. Low temperatures tonight are expected to be warmer than normal as warm air out ahead of the cold front keeps them generally in the mid 60s to low 70s. Warm air moving into the area will again allow temperatures tomorrow out ahead of the front to reach near 80 for many areas, especially across SE Louisiana and the MS Gulf Coast.
Our main focus of the short term will be the approaching cold front, expected to arrive after 3 a.m. With this front we have a marginal risk of severe weather, mainly for northwestern parts of our area. While large-scale support for severe weather isn’t as good for our area along the coast, the environment will likely be unstable enough to still support an isolated tornado and some damaging wind gusts.
