Monday Night: Strong Storms Tonight; Sharp Decline in Temperatures Tomorrow

Weather

Tonight: Strong storms are possible tonight ahead of a cold front. The biggest threat is straight line winds. Gusts could exceed 70 mph, which could lead to fallen trees and minor structural damage. Heavy rain, a brief tornado and hail are also threats. The line of storms looks like it will move through the Baton Rouge area around 8 p.m., so be sure to take extra precautions while driving. If a warning is issued for your area, make sure to take immediate shelter. Wind will be southerly at 10-15 mph. Low of 43.

Tomorrow: Temperatures will be much cooler tomorrow. We’re looking at about a thirty degree drop in temperatures. Highs will sit in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds will be northerly at 10-15 mph, and when that is factored in, feel-like temperatures will be in the lower 40s. High of 50.

Extended: Lows will sit near freezing overnight on Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs through Thursday will not escape the 50s. The weekend will be warmer with highs in the 60s, but a few showers are possible.
