Today: Today will feel much better than yesterday with dewpoints at more manageable levels. A weak cold front will drag dry air into our region. This will keep us dry today and keep the heat index no higher than 104 degrees. Despite this, a HEAT ADVISORY is still issued today due to the fact that many of you are still without power and air conditioning. Highs will be around 91 degrees with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies.
Saturday-Sunday: High pressure takes over leading to sunnier and drier conditions for the remainder of the weekend. Temperatures should stay the same around 91 but dewpoints will stay, which will help with anyone still remaining without power who are suffering from the heat.
Monday-Tuesday: Highs remain around 90 degrees with scattered showers & storms in the afternoon.
Wednesday-Thursday: Highs will be a couple of degrees lower, around 88 degrees. Rain chances remain but become more spotty to isolated.
Tracking the Tropics: There is an area in the western Caribbean that has a low chance of development in the next 5 days when it enters the Bay of Campeche. This will be watched closely.
Hurricane Larry is in the East Atlantic. It will likely head into the open Atlantic to the north, away from the Caribbean. It will not affect Baton Rouge.
