Tonight: We will be mostly dry overnight, but an isolated shower or two cannot be ruled out. Otherwise, partly cloudy with low temperatures in the lower 70s. A few spots may dip down into the upper 60s. Patchy fog is possible in the morning. 

Monday: A cool front will clear the local area but it may slow down as it nears the coast. It could washout by the time it reaches the coast, which means the coastal areas may not feel the effects of the front as much – Either way, the I-10/I-12 corridor and points to the north certainly will. A couple of showers are possible along and south of the I-10/I-12 corridor, but most stay dry. Highs in the mid and upper 80s. Overnight temperatures will dip down into the low and mid 60s, except for the coastal areas.  

Tuesday – Thursday: Lower humidity will stick around for a couple of days and we will stay mostly dry and mostly sunny. High temperatures will still be in the upper 80s to around 90, but we’ll have a couple of mornings in the low and mid 60s. Areas north and east of Baton Rouge may even drop down into the upper 50s Wednesday morning especially.  

Friday & Weekend: A couple of spotty showers return to the area. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees. Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s. 

Tracking the Tropics: Only ONE area monitored by the National Hurricane Center. Climatologically speaking, activity tends to go downhill from here. Let’s hope that trend continues into the rest of the month and October!
