Recent record breaking heat in some areas of the state will give way today to much cooler temperatures as a cold front moves in. State Climatologist Barry Keim says expect a gray dreary day.
"The clouds and rain are going to hang around all day today, but the rain totals aren't going to amount to a whole lot. It's going to be mostly drizzly conditions and periodic light rain."
"By tomorrow morning, expect some pretty chilly temperatures. Morning temperatures are going to be in the 40s across the northern parishes, 50s across central Louisiana and then low 60s across the coast, with high temperatures today only reaching into the 60s."
Keim says the cold front should provide Louisiana with a fall like weekend, especially for those attending the LSU-Arkansas game which kicks off at 11am.
"For those of you headed out to the LSU game, game time temperatures expected to be about 64 degrees rising into the mid 70s. SO it cold be pretty chilly for that early tailgating time if you're hanging out on campus before the game."
Keim says even though Louisiana hasn’t seen temperatures in the 90s, the recent humid weather is not normally seen in early November.
