Cold Front Bringing Lower Temps & Reduced Humidity To Louisiana
A rare midsummer cold front moves through Louisiana today. State Climatologist Barry Keim says it will bring some more rain for south Louisiana, but it will drop high temperatures to the low to mid-80's the next couple of days.
“Just realize that climatically we are in the warmest part of the year for the Gulf South and we are actually in for some significant relief, this is something you really want to embrace,” said Keim.
Keim says also expect truly pleasant conditions at the start of the day, starting Wednesday morning.
“Morning temperatures will be in the mid to upper 60’s with much, much lower humidity. Now if you are along the coastline, those morning temperatures may be a little higher, probably low 70’s or close to 70,” said Keim.
Keim expects the front to last through the work week with Wednesday and Thursday and by Sunday it should essentially be over.
“If you are an exercise enthusiast, if you run, if you play golf, if you bike, if you can get out on Wednesday or Thursday, by all means, do so,” said Keim.
