Tonight: A few showers are still moving over the Baton Rouge Metro area, but shortly after midnight, most of the area will be dry. Clouds will gradually clear overnight, and this will help temperatures fall into the lower 70s. Winds will be light. Low near 73.
Tomorrow: Sunday will provide a great start to the week. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day. Highs will rise into the mid 90s once again, but it will feel a lot more bearable outside with lower dew points. Still, it is a good idea to practice heat safety. Expect a light northeasterly breeze. High near 94.
Extended: Labor Day will be hot, dry and sunny. Our dew points will continue to sit in the 60s, keeping it somewhat comfortable outside. Tuesday will be the next chance for a few showers moisture from the Gulf drives into the region. Wednesday; however, will be the best chance for rain as a cold front plunges into the southeast. This will be a strong front, and it will bring significant change. Temperatures will fall into the 80s on Thursday, and they will stay in there as we end the week. We are also looking at lows in the 60s, so all in all, it will feel like fall.
