Rain ends in time for the weekend
Some late day clearing Thursday

(KSLA) - The rain will finally be coming to an end. The clouds will hang around little longer, but those will also clear away Friday afternoon. Sunny and beautiful weather is expected this weekend.

Clouds will hang on tonight with some mist and drizzle possible. Temperatures will fall off into the lower to mid 60s.

Other than some morning mist or drizzle, dry weather will be settling in during the day Thursday. Clouds will be tough to shake, but some gradual clearing from north to south through the afternoon will bring some brighter skies back by the end of the day in many areas. Temperatures will stay below average, but warmer than the last few days with afternoon highs in the mid 70s to near 80.

By Friday, the sunshine will be back in full force! It may start off with clouds around in the morning, but they will be clearing throughout the day. By the evening, there should not be many clouds left. We will be ending this week and heading into the weekend on a great note! Temperatures on Friday will be slightly warmer, and get back up to the lower 80s.

The weekend promises sunshine and dry weather with only a few passing clouds. Temperatures will bounce back to near average for this time of year in the mid 80s. Mornings will remain comfortable in the 60s.

We’ll start off next week on a warm note with highs in the 80s Monday and Tuesday. By midweek a fall cold front is expected to push through. Rain chances look slim with the front, but expect some very pleasant weather coming in for the second half of next week. Highs will drop back into the 70s with morning lows that could dip into the 50s under clear October skies.

First alert to the tropics! It is finally QUIET! There are no areas of concern in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, or Atlantic through the end of the month it appears. Finally we can catch our breath from a very busy hurricane season! But October can be active in the tropics in an average year so we are likely not finished yet.

Have a great rest of the week!
