Tonight: It won’t be as comfortable, but still not unbearable. Morning temperatures will be in the mid and upper 60s except for coastal areas.
Saturday & Sunday: Mostly sunny, hot, and humid with highs in the lower 90s. A few pop-showers are possible during the afternoon and evening, but most will stay completely dry. Rain chance is only around 20 percent for the Baton Rouge metro and around 30 percent for coastal zones. Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Next Week: A ridge of high pressure will keep our weather pattern mostly dry and hot. High temperatures will back up in the low and mid 90s and we’re mostly rain-free. Autumn officially begins next Thursday and it will feel like summer, but there’s no surprise there!
Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Storm Fiona is forecast track toward Hispaniola. It’s been struggling since it has been battling wind shear. Most model guidance has it curving to the north-northwest. A Gulf of Mexico track is highly unlikely at this time.
