Tuesday Morning: Hot & humid today; cold front this weekend

News

Today: A ridge of high pressure still dominates our region, but weakens temporarily today. A disturbance in Oklahoma will move towards the Great Lakes today. An attached cold front will sweep into northern Louisiana but will miss us entirely. Despite this, its close proximity to us will lead to increasing passing clouds this afternoon and one or two showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, with the better chances to the north and west of Baton Rouge. Highs remain in the upper-80s. Overnight will see partly cloudy skies with lows near 71 degrees. 

Tuesday: One or two more showers may still be possible with most staying dry under partly cloudy skies. Highs near 88 degrees with lows near 70 degrees overnight.  

Wednesday-Thursday: Dry weather sticks around again with more sunshine thanks to a high-pressure system building in the region. Highs will remain in the upper-80s.  

Friday-Sunday: A cold front will likely push through late or overnight on Friday into Saturday. This will lead to some big changes in the weather forecast. Friday will start like other days in the week, warming into the upper-80s with humid conditions and partly cloudy skies. But then the front could come through late. Along the passage of the front, expect a quick shower or thunderstorm. Saturday highs will be back in the upper-70s with overnight lows dropping into the upper-50s. Sunday will be sunny, less humid and see highs barely reaching the mid-70s. 

Tracking the Tropics: 2 tropical waves have a low chance of development in the Atlantic. Neither of them poses a threat to Louisiana at this time.
