Today: A frontal boundary moved through early on Thursday leading to sunny skies. The front is also why Tropical Storm Mindy moved into Florida and avoided Louisiana. The passing of the boundary has led to drier air, meaning lower dew points and more pleasant feeling air thanks to a lower humidity. We’ll keep highs in the upper-to-mid-80s. Overnight lows will be in the mid-60s which will feel amazing! Dew points could even dip below 60 degrees which will make it feel pleasant outside.
Saturday: We’ll see the same thing on Saturday that we see on Friday.
Sunday into Next Week: Rain chances become spotty to scattered with highs in the upper-80s and higher dew points leading to more high heat index values.
Tracking the Tropics: Hurricane Larry is moving further into the open Atlantic, away from the Caribbean. It will not affect Baton Rouge.
A tropical wave in the Caribbean has a moderate chance of development in the Bay of Campeche in the next 5 days. We’ll have to watch this one closely.
