Thursday Morning: More record warmth; Winter returns on Sunday

Weather

Today & Tonight: A few passing showers and storms, but most will stay warm and dry. Record high temperatures are likely once again. Baton Rouge’s previous record high temperature of 81°F (December 30th) was in 1984. Isolated showers overnight with areas of patchy fog by morning.

New Year’s Eve: Only a few spotty showers or storms. Partly sunny and warm with highs near 82°. We should be mostly dry by midnight, but it will be super warm and humid. Dress accordingly!

New Year’s Day: A strong cold front will move in and storms are likely during the second half of the day and Saturday night. We will need to watch for strong storms again, but as of now, the strongest storms will likely stay to our north. Temperatures will drop into the 30s and 40s by Sunday morning. 

Sunday: Early morning showers are possible. We will hit our high early in the morning and we will likely be in the 40s by the afternoon, but the wind will make it feel like the 30s all day long. We are expecting our first freeze of the season Sunday night and into Monday morning as temperatures tank into the 20s and 30s. Prepare to take care of people, pets, and plants. A hard freeze may even be possible, which would mean protecting pipes – that detail is still a bit unclear. Stay tuned!

Next Week: Much colder to start in the 40s and 50s for highs and we’re back in the 60s and 70s later in the week.
