Friday Morning: Storms today; More rain this weekend

Weather

Expect storms and heavy rain as a tropical system approaches.

Today: We’re closely monitoring Potential Tropical Cyclone Three. It is not a tropical depression or tropical storm, but it could become either of those sometime today or tonight. Regardless, this system is expected to bring heavy rain and gusty winds to the northern Gulf states. Scattered storms from the rain bands of this system will likely reach the Baton Rouge metro around 11 a.m. or noon. There could be pockets of heavy rain. Showers and storms will continue throughout the day. Winds will be easterly at 10-20 mph, and gusts could exceed 30 mph. High near 87.

Tonight: There is the chance for heavy rain early tonight, but after midnight, some models have us only receiving scattered showers. Make sure to have multiple ways to receive warnings in case any are issued while you are sleeping. Winds will be out of the northeast at 10-15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Low near 73.

Extended: Scattered showers and storms are possible throughout the day tomorrow, but it doesn’t look like the day will be a complete washout. Temperatures will reach the mid 80 with breezy conditions. The tropical system will continue to move over land and out of our area, but due to a warm front, rain will be in our Father’s Day forecast. There could be pockets of heavy rain and localized flooding. Rain will linger on Monday and Tuesday. There will be a low chance of precipitation on Wednesday and Thursday, so most areas will stay dry. High will be in the mid to upper 80s throughout the week.
