Thursday Morning: Veterans Day showers; significantly colder Saturday

Weather

Veterans Day: Despite a cold front coming through this morning, today will be the warmest day of the week with a high near 77 degrees. This front will push through around mid-morning through lunchtime. A line of showers with a few thunderstorms are possible around this time as weel, however, significant rain totals are next expected. After the front pushes through, temperatures remain in the 70s for the afternoon with clearing clouds. Tonight will be mostly clear with overnight lows near 50 degrees. This is much cooler than previously because of clearing skies. 

Friday: It remains a nice day with mostly sunny skies and highs near 75 degrees. 

Saturday: A second cold front pushes through bringing significantly colder weather to Louisiana. This front will be a dry front, so don’t expect increased cloud cover or rain. We’ll see sunny skies with its passage. Highs on Saturday will be a chilly 58 degrees with a shivering overnight low of 38 degrees. This would be our first 30s of the season if we get there.  

Sunday: We stay cool on Sunday with highs near 66 degrees. However, this is significantly warmer than Saturday. Overnight lows back into the mid-40s. 

Next Week: Quiet weather is expected with a continued warming trend. Highs reach 70 on Monday then rise to 76 degrees by Wednesday. We should keep the sunshine with us at the start of next week.  

Tracking the Tropics: No impacts to Baton Rouge expected.
