Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: A weak front is expected to pass, which will bring slightly drier air to our region. It will still be hot this afternoon – it just won’t feel as bad. Highs will be in the low and mid 90s instead of the mid and upper 90s. Rain chance is around 10%. Areas to our west and near the coast have a better shot for wet weather today. North wind around 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mainly clear and quiet. Northern areas will drop into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Southern zones will drop into the low and mid 70s.

Tuesday: Sunny and hot thanks to drier air in place. Drier air will lead to temperatures warming up into the mid 90s, but it will feel like the mid and upper 90s thanks to a north wind. Rain chance is less than 10%. Morning and mid to late evening will be decent for any outdoor activities. Overnight low near 72.

Wednesday: Pleasant morning. Moisture will gradually return, as well. Rain chance is around 20-30%. High near 93°F. Humidity starts to creep back up. Overnight temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Baton Rouge low around 71°F.

Thursday: The front may stall out to our south. The location of it stalling out will determine how much rain we will see. If it stalls out in the Gulf, then rain chances will be highest near the coast and offshore. For now, rain chance is around 30-40%. High near 91°F. Humidity starts to increase more. Overnight low near 71°F.

Friday: Boundary may begin to wash out and dissipate. Rain chance is around 40%. High near 90°F.

Weekend: Scattered showers and storms with highs in the lower 90s. Rain chance is around 40%. Low temperatures in the lower 70s.

Tracking the Tropics: Two tropical waves in the Atlantic have our attention. Long-range models show the potential for these waves to move into the western Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. It would likely not be until next week. We have plenty of time to watch. Next names on the list are Laura and Marco.
