Beautiful Monday, more hefty storms possible Tuesday

Monday will be another spectacular day before our next system could bring another round of strong storms



OF A TORNADO. UNFORTUNATELY SO LET’S START OFF. I’LL SHOW YOU UP IN NEW ENGLAND TODAY, ALL THE WAY FROM THE MID-ATLANTIC, NEW ENGLAND TO THE UPPER MIDWEST. AND WRAPPING BACK ALL THE WAY TO CHICAGO. THAT STORM HAD A BIG EVEN SAINT LOUIS, KANSAS CITY, THE START, THE DAY I WAS TELLING YOU FOR DAYS THAT THIS COULD BE THE ONE YOU GOT TO WATCH, HOW THAT COULD POSSIBLY CASCADE OUR MAJOR AIRPORTS FROM DULLES, THE REAGAN NATIONAL, JFK, TO EVEN BOSTON, LOGAN FORTUNATELY, AS WE JUST SAID, IT BROUGHT DELAYS FIRST AND FOREMOST, THIS WEAK FRONT COMING IN TONIGHT. NOT A WHOLE LOT TO IT, BUT MAYBE A SPRINKLE COMES. BUT THE STRONGER STORM NORTH, THAT’S THE THAT’S GOING TO BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME SERIOUSLY STRONG STORMS. LET’S SAY IT’S MORE MID-SOUTH LOOKING MORE MEMPHIS AND LOOKING MORE TOWARDS THE ARKANSAS DELTA REGION AS YOU HEAD IN TOWARDS AROUND MISSISSIPPI IN THE NORTHEAST LOUISIANA DOWN HERE. SOMETHING WATCH. THERE YOU SEE THAT LITTLE SPRINKLE POTENTIAL IN MAY EASE AND LEAD INTO THE MORNING, BUT FOR THE MOST PART, WE’RE DIPPING INTO THE FIFTIES, THE BEGINNING OF THE MONDAY MORNING. SO GRAB THE JACKET AGAIN. IT’S NOT THE COLDEST START TO IT. PLENTY OF SUN TO COME IN THE AFTERNOON TO LOOK AT THIS. WE’RE RIGHT BACK TO THE SEVENTIES ONCE AGAIN. IT’S JUST HOW WE ENDED THIS THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY. WE’RE GOING TO KICK OFF THE WORK AND SCHOOL WEEK NOW TUESDAY. THIS IS MY MAIN FOCUS. COMING IN TUESDAY, A CHANCE OF SOME STORMS. BUT YOU CAN SEE THIS PARTICULAR FORECAST WANTS TO PUT A LOT OF THEM HERE, MAYBE TOWARDS THE METRO AND NORTH NORTH SHORE, BUT THEN MORE OF THE HEADING NORTH THROUGHOUT THE DAY. YOU CAN SEE THESE STRONG SOUTH WINDS. SO STORMS WILL BE MOVING SOUTH AND NORTH THAT DAY. BUT THE LIKELIEST RAIN CHANCES STILL LOOKING OVERNIGHT TUESDAY TO WEDNESDAY OR MAYBE EARLY TUESDAY MORNING. WE PUT THIS IN THE BIGGER PICTURE. THERE’S A LEVEL RISK OF SEVERE STORMS FOR US ALL THE WAY OUT OF FIVE CATEGORIES. BUT LOOK AT THE MID-SOUTH WHERE I JUST MENTIONED THAT DEFINED AREA. THERE’S A LEVEL THREE RISK ALREADY AT THIS TIME THAT’S PRETTY SIGNIFICANT. FLOODING RAINS COULD ALSO BE SOMETHING TO WATCH. AND THERE’S A LEVEL TWO THREAT DOES DIP INTO THE NORTH SHORE, BUT REALLY IT’S GOING TO BE ABOUT THE STRENGTH THAT STORMS HIGH TEMPERATURES COULD CLOSING IN NEAR 80 HIGH HUMIDITY AND THAT MEANS THERE TONS OF ENERGY IN THE ATMOSPHERE HERE ON TUESDAY. THERE WILL BE WINDS FROM THE SOUTH THAT SWITCH TO THE SOUTHWEST. YOU GO UP SEVERAL THOUSAND FEET IN THE AIR. THAT CREATES SOME SPIN. HOWEVER, THERE’S GOING TO BE LITTLE BIT WHAT WE SEE A CAP. SO THE STORMS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO FIRE AND ROLL THROUGH AS MOST OF THE ENERGY STAYING DEVELOPS. MOST OF THOSE STORMS THAT ARE MORE INTO THE ARKLATEX REGION, IF NOT MORE, AND ARKANSAS IN THE MID-SOUTH, THAT WOULD BE MEMPHIS AND GO INTO ARKANSAS AND MAYBE INTO THE SOUTHEAST. ARKANSAS, I THINK MOST IN THE WORST. THE WEATHER IS NORTH IN WEST OF US. SO FOR US, STRONG WIND GUSTS POTENTIAL AND MAINLY OVERNIGHT TUESDAY TO WEDNESDAY AND I STILL PUT A TORNADO THREAT ON DOWN LOWER IN THE LIST THAN LAST TO COME WILL BE DROPPING. TEMPERATURES COMING WEDNESDAY. SO LOOK OUT THAT THREE IS A MORNING HIGH SHOULD HAVE PUT THE DOWN ARROW HERE BECAUSE COOLER AIR IS GOING TO SPILL IN. WATCH FOR STRONG STORMS COMING IN THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. COMING INTO TUESDAY AND OH YEAH. YOU KNOW, OUR HOLIDAY IS NEXT SATURDAY. 11 A.M. LOOKING BEAUTIFUL WEATHER FOR THAT. STAY WITH US. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SOM

Monday will be another spectacular day before our next system could bring another round of strong storms

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend, and the weather Sunday capped it off in a wonderful way!Highs reached well into the 70s and here in New Orleans, we came pretty close to hitting 80!There is a very weak front coming through overnight that could spark a sprinkle or light shower or two. And those could bleed into the daybreak hours on Monday too.Lows will be in the 50s for most, but highs will be right back into the 70s under a beautiful sunny day to kick off the work and school week!Now, let’s talk Tuesday and Wednesday. A strong storm system will drop into the Central U.S. on Tuesday and that could bring a round of severe storms. Right now, the greatest threat for severe weather will be located over the Mid South, centered around Memphis. At this time, Southeast Louisiana is under a level 1 (marginal) out of 5 for severe storms but around Memphis they’re under a level 3 (enhanced) risk for severe storms. We’re also under levels 1 and 2 (marginal, slight) for possible flooding rain tooThe way the atmosphere is shaping up, we could break out a few storms on Tuesday but the likeliest round of storms for all of us will come overnight Tuesday into Wednesday.If the main round of storms comes in early Wednesday, the greatest threat will come from wind gusts over 58 mph IF storms become severe. Heavy rain will be next on the list, followed by a possible tornado.From everything I’ve seen, I think most of us could find some weakening showers early Wednesday morning, but our threat from severe storms is low.Looking ahead through the rest of the week, Wednesday will be warm in the morning but much cooler through the rest of the day (that’s why the blue ‘down’ arrow) but temperatures will warm quickly to bring us back into the 70s by next weekend, right in time for our inaugural holiday parade at 11 AM in downtown New Orleans! Have a good Monday and a great week!- Devon
