Monday Morning: Monitoring Hurricane Sally

Weather

Today: We could begin to feel some of the impacts from Sally. There is the possibility for widely scattered storms this afternoon, but many locations will stay dry. Expect breezy conditions with winds out of the northeast at 10-20 mph. Gusts could be up to 30 mph. Skies will be partly cloudy otherwise, and it will be a hot day. Temperatures will be near average with highs in the lower 90s, but it will feel more like the lower 100s. Make sure to stay weather aware. High near 92.

Tonight: There is a chance for isolated storms tonight, but most places will stay dry throughout the night. Clouds will gradually clear leading to partly cloudy skies. Winds will be northeasterly around 10 mph, but gusts could be higher. Low near 76.

Extended: Tropical storm conditions will pick up tomorrow as Sally moves closer to land. Scattered storms are possible in the Baton Rouge metro area, but most of the rain and impacts will occur to our east. The primary threats will be heavy rain from Sally’s outer bands, gusty winds and localized flash flooding. The track for Sally has shifted farther east, so these impacts would likely be on the lower side. Storm conditions are again possible on Wednesday, but rain chances will be lower on Wednesday and during the rest of the week. Temperatures will also be cooler with highs remaining in the 80s after a cold front moves in this weekend.
