.DISCUSSION...
Low clouds and patchy dense fog will continue to plague the north
Louisiana fire districts through the morning hours before slowly
improving as we approach midday. Temperatures will climb into the
upper 70s to lower 80s over our southern districts with southeast
winds around 5 to 15 mph expected through the next 24 hours. Min RH
values will range from 40-50 percent today and then increase to
60-70 percent on Monday with the onset of rain as showers and
thunderstorms become widespread with an upper level trough making
its way through the region. Low clouds and fog will precede the
arrival of rain on Monday morning.
