I am remembering perhaps the most chilling Special Weather Statement of all time. Issued 4 years ago tomorrow, by the New Orleans National Weather Service office, located in Slidell as Katrina approached. A forecaster, who actually lived in the 9th ward, …tried to find the best words to rally people to take action. Aug. 28, 2005. Truly chilling. NBC’s Brian Williams remembers reading this on his Blackberry as he arrived at the Baton Rouge airport, preparing for storm coverage at the Super Bowl. It had a very sobering affect on his NBC crew!
We tied a record this morning at 57 degrees. Looks like clear skies with lows around 63 Tuesday morning. Moisture will gradually return to the region by mid-week. Expect a chance of showers and storms late week.
