WEST MONROE, La. - The weekend has begun on a gloomy and chilly note. Temperatures are well below-average for the second week in March. Temperatures will eventually fall into the lower 40s overnight as rain chances increase through midnight. Thankfully, there isn't enough upper-level cold air to support any other type of precipitation besides rain. The best chance at any type of sleet/light snow is well north of our viewing area.
The system will clear the region and push to the south early Sunday morning. It will leave behind a significant amount of cloud cover. The clouds will begin to break some by the afternoon as highs return to the low and mid 50s. It appears temperatures will stay generally below-average through at least next weekend.
And don't forget! Set your clocks FORWARD one hour before you head to bed tonight! You may lose an hour of sleep, but the good news-- it'll be much lighter later on Sunday. Enjoy!
