Wednesday Morning: Stormy again with more warm, muggy conditions

News

Today: Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be more in coverage between 80 to 60% with rain chances mostly in the afternoon. The humidity will also be back to higher levels with highs in the low-80s (maybe only upper-70s if it rains as consistently as yesterday) and partly cloudy skies, otherwise. The higher humidity will lead to heat index values between 90 and 95 degrees if the rain gets a late start. Overnight lows will be in the low-70s to upper-60s, depending on cloud cover. 

Thursday: Thursday likely won’t be as wet as Tuesday and Wednesday but still, a 50 to 60% coverage of showers and thunderstorms is likely thanks to ample moisture still in the region. Highs will remain in the mid-80s.  

Friday-Sunday: A front fails to fully make it to Louisiana, but slightly drier air still moves in with high pressure settling in. This will lead to spotty to isolated rain chances but nothing overwhelming with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s and partly cloudy skies.  

Monday-Tuesday: Partly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid-80s.  

Tracking the Tropics: Hurricane Sam is a major hurricane that will move north into the Atlantic, away from Louisiana.  

2 more tropical waves off the West African coast have a high chance of development over the next 2 days. We will have to watch these closely as they trek west-northwestward towards the Caribbean Sea and middle Atlantic. 

One other tropical wave in the Atlantic is not a concern to Baton Rouge.
