StormTracker Morning Forecast…
Today: Areas of fog to start the day. Rain chances will begin to increase later this morning ahead of a cold front. The main line of thunderstorms will likely begin to push into western and northwestern zones by late morning/lunchtime before passing through the Baton Rouge metro by the afternoon and then exiting the BR Proud area by late afternoon and early evening. We will hit our high for the day around lunch before temperatures drop quickly into the 70s thanks to rain-cooled air and cooler air moving into the region. By the timing you’re heading home from work, temperatures will likely be in the lower 70s – some may even be in the upper 60s. Rain chances will come to an end this evening.
Tonight: Partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid and upper 50s for most areas. Sweater weather by morning!
Tuesday: Clearing skies and breezy conditions. Highs will only top out in the low and mid 70s. Overnight low near 51°F. Some may drop into the upper 40s.
Wednesday: Beautiful and sunny with highs in the mid 70s. Overnight temperature near 55°F.
Thursday: Mostly sunny as another cold front begins to push into the area. Not expecting rain with this front. It will bring another surge of dry air to the area. Highs will briefly warm into the lower 80s. Overnight temperature near 57°F.
Friday: Sunny and pleasant with highs in the mid 70s. Overnight temperatures in the lower 50s. Some may cool into the upper 40s.
Weekend: Mostly sunny and very pleasant with highs in the mid and upper 70s. Overnight temperatures will be in the 50s. We stay rain-free. Another front may try and push in early next week.
Tracking the Tropics: There will be an area to watch in the western Caribbean during the first week of October. No immediate concern, but be sure to check back daily. Long range models show possibly a Gulf system next week. Too early to tell.
