StormTracker Morning Forecast…
Today and Tonight: A low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico will track toward Louisiana today. The system will track farther to our south than previously thought, so our area has been trimmed from the severe weather outlook. We will still deal with rain – possibly heavy at times, as well. Precipitation may start off as freezing rain this morning before transitioning to all rain by this afternoon and evening as temperatures warm above freezing. Additional ice accumulations should remain around 0.10″ or less. Temperatures will vary depending on your location. If you live closer to the coast, temperatures will be higher than in the Baton Rouge metro. Rain will become widespread this afternoon and early evening. Heavy rain will be a possibility – 1-2″ with locally higher amounts expected.
Morning temperatures will fall into the low and mid 30s. Slick roads may be possible Thursday morning.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy and cold with highs only in the 30s and 40s. Another frigid night with morning lows in the mid 20s. Prepare to protect people, pets, plants, and pipes!
Friday: Sunny and cold. Highs in the 40s. Overnight temperatures in the low and mid 20s. Hard Freeze may be possible. Prepare to protect people, pets, plants, and pipes!
Weekend: This weekend is looking warmer, but still cool. Highs will be in the 50s on Saturday and 60s on Sunday. Another cold front looks to move in Sunday night and into Monday.
Next Week: Looking much warmer with highs in the 60s and possibly even 70s.
