Monday Morning: Heavy rain possible today with dry & sunny weather returning late-week

Weather

Today: Numerous showers & storms are likely along a frontal boundary pushing through the region. The front will move slowly and maybe even stall with ample moisture along it. This means the showers could have heavier downpours and move slowly or train over the same areas. Flooding will be a concern given the possible heavy rainfall. Areas of particular concern will be locations that experienced flooding from Ida. A HEAT ADVISORY is also in place with feels like temperatures projected to be between 100 to 105 degrees. This may change though if rain comes early. Actual highs will be in the upper-80s. Overnight temperatures will drop in the low-70s.  

Tuesday-Wednesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible with highs in the upper-80s.  

Thursday-Sunday: The forecast takes a shift during late-week into the weekend. Highs will be in the low-90s with mostly sunny to sunny skies. Overnight lows will creep into the mid-to-upper 60s which will feel nice for anyone out late or early.  

Tracking the Tropics: There is a tropical wave in the Bay of Campeche that will move northeast. It has a low chance of development in the northeastern Gulf towards the Atlantic. Threats to Baton Rouge are looking low.  

Hurricane Larry is in the East Atlantic. It is moving further into the open Atlantic, away from the Caribbean. It will not affect Baton Rouge.
