The Storm Prediction Center is giving southeast Louisiana and the Gulf Coast a slight risk of severe weather Tuesday as a cold front moves through the area.
Meteorologist Andrew Ansorge at the National Weather Service office in Slidell says storms could begin to move in as early as late Monday night.
Ansorge says they are monitoring for "the potential for damaging wind gusts, small to large hail, and even possibly isolated tornadoes."
"Expecting maybe a round earlier in the day, then another round in the afternoon hours, so people just need to be weather aware throughout the day tomorrow," he tells News Talk 99.5 WRNO.
The good news is that our grey, gloomy days are almost at an end. "Once this cold front gets through late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, it will be about five to ten degrees cooler, but it looks dry Christmas Eve and Christmas Day."
"So, it looks like once we get past this next day or so, it'll be nice," says Ansorge.
