Thursday Morning: Pleasant, sunny weather settles in

News

Today: A frontal boundary will move through very early on Thursday leading to sunny skies. The front is also why Tropical Storm Mindy moved into Florida and avoided Louisiana. The passing of the boundary will also lead to drier air, meaning lower dew points and more pleasant feeling air thanks to a lower humidity. Highs will be in the upper-80s. Overnight lows will drop into the mid-to-low 60s with clear skies. The cooler air will feel great for anyone out after sunset.  

Friday-Saturday: It will still be dry and sunny on these days thanks to a north wind after the passage of the frontal boundary. We’ll keep highs in the upper-to-mid-80s. Overnight lows will be in the mid-60s which will feel amazing! Dew points could even dip below 60 degrees which will make it feel pleasant outside.  

Sunday into Next Week: Rain chances become spotty to scattered with highs in the upper-80s and higher dew points leading to more high heat index values. 

Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Depression Mindy moved into Florida as a tropical storm and is expected to weaken as in moves into the Atlantic and out into open waters as a cold front kicks it away from North America.  

Hurricane Larry is in the East Atlantic. It is moving further into the open Atlantic, away from the Caribbean. It will not affect Baton Rouge.  

A tropical wave in the Caribbean has a low chance of development in the Bay of Campeche in the next 5 days. We’ll have to watch this one closely.
