Wednesday Morning: Nicholas brings drenching rain with more wet weather after it leaves

News

Today: Nicholas has given us about 4 to 6 inches of rain for most people, so far. Nicholas will continue to crawl into Louisiana as a tropical depression or subtropical low. It will bring more rain today with the rain being less widespread and more scattered than yesterday. However, heavier downpours will still be possible with 1-3 inches of rain still expected. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in place until 6pm. Highs should get much warmer than 80 degrees due to plenty of rain and cloud cover.  

Tomorrow: Rain chances will still be in the forecast as Nicholas begins to dissipate. However, the weakness it leaves in the atmosphere will still kick up showers and storms for us on Thursday, though more scattered in nature. It will feel more like typical summer showers than tropical rain. Highs will be around 84 degrees.  

Friday-Sunday: Rain chances remain in the forecast with partly cloudy skies and temperatures back in the mid-80s. We keep the muggy air with us.  

Monday-Tuesday: Scattered showers and storms are possible with highs in the mid-80s as the weakness in the atmosphere formerly known as Nicholas will still be hanging around.  

Tracking the Tropics: Another system in the tropics is worth watching. A tropical wave off the west African coast is quickly becoming organized and is likely to develop into a tropical depression or tropical storm as it tracks westward across the open Atlantic and towards the Caribbean.  

No other tropical systems are of concern for Baton Rouge although there is a system the East coast is watching for development.
