Louisiana - April Weather Information

Typical Monthly Temperatures and Average Rainfall

By

April is a nice month to visit Louisiana and perhaps the last month of spring to enjoy spring-like weather in Louisiana, since May often begins to feel more like summer for visitors from cooler regions. Typical average high temperatures during May are in the upper 70° range with average low temperatures in the mid to upper 50° to low 60° range. When packing for a visit, remember to include a light rain jacket for spring showers. Because temperatures may be higher or lower than these typical averages, clothing that can be layered is always a good idea.
