We’re heading south to Lafayette, Louisiana the major city in south central Louisiana. It is also home to the aptly named Louisiana University at Lafayette.
At 1153AM, CT, Lafayette was reporting a temperature of 78 degrees with clear skies. Generally light flow was seen over land, and a light on shore flow was being seen over the northern Gulf of Mexico. This has led to foggy morning recently, but won’t be inducing thunderstorms this afternoon.
Instead, an upper level low over the southwestern US will move into the center of the country, all while generating a stouter southerly flow. The difference in arimass isn’t as great as in the summer, so widespread thunderstorms aren’t likely until the afternoon on Sunday. Ahead of that time, expect fog becoming increasingly dense in the mornings, with temperatures and humidity climbing through the period.
