Tonight: Tonight will continue to see partly cloudy skies. Overnight lows will be in the mid 50s. There is a chance for some patchy fog, more so in parishes near the coast and lakes, tonight into the early morning. 

Tomorrow: More cloud cover will return for the area with high temperatures reaching into the upper 70s. There is a slight chance for a passing shower or two in the latter half of the day into the night. Areas west and northwest of Baton Rouge will have a better chance for rain. Overnight lows will be in the upper 50s.  

Beyond: A high pressure ridge will settle over the region by mid-week allowing for a dry pattern with warmer temperatures. Highs will be in the low 80s and lows will be warmer in the low 60s. The next chance of rain and storms comes during the weekend with a front moving towards the area. Rain chances are low for now as the system looks to weaken a touch as it moves east. Guidance is suggesting that the front will begin to slow to a stall into Sunday.

Don’t forget that Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday at 2 am. We gain an extra hour of sleep. Good time to change batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.  

Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Storm Lisa is located in the Caribbean with maximum winds at 45 mph. The track takes it towards Central American south of the Yucatan Peninsula strengthening to a category 1. There is no threat to the Gulf Coast.
