Get ready for some beautiful weather Louisiana as another cold front settles over the state over the next several days. State Climatologist Barry Keim says today is just the beginning with slightly cooler and less humid conditions. He says the temperatures this morning are in the 60s across most of Louisiana.
"But the highs today are only going to be in the mid 80s which doesn't sound like a big drop," says Keim. "But the humidity is going to be dramatically reduced and it's going to feel so much better."
Keim says by tomorrow morning, the minimum temperatures are going to be in the 50s, with high temperatures only in the 70s.
He says this weather pattern is going to persist through the weekend and perhaps even into early next week.
"So we're going to get a real protracted run of this incredibly beautiful weather," says Keim. "And my interpretation here is that summer weather, not exactly over, but fall is really starting to get a foothold now."
Keim says from here on out, cooler and less humid weather should start to dominate the pattern as we kiss summer heat goodbye. He feels, for the most part, those long periods of hot sticky weather are over.
"We're going to start seeing longer runs of these cooler days and shorter runs of that hot summery weather," says Keim. "The next 5-7 days are going to be absolutely fantastic."
