Tonight: Mostly clear, quiet, and cool. Morning lows will be in the 50s. 

Friday & Saturday: A storm system will move into the region. The system will increase our rain chances as the day goes on Friday. Best chance for rain will be mainly west and southwest of Baton Rouge during the day and evening. The most likely time for rain will be Friday night through around midday Saturday. Highs will be in the 70s and overnight temperatures in the 60s. Rain totals look to be about a 0.50 inches to around 1.25 inches. Strong to severe storms will be possible Saturday morning through about midday. Damaging wind would be the main threat, but a tornado and hail cannot be ruled out.

Sunday: Clouds could hang tight thanks to wrap-around moisture surging into the area as the system departs the region. High temperatures in the 70s.  

Halloween: Pleasant weather for Halloween and trick or treating. Highs in the 70s and evening temperatures will be in the 60s. Overnight temperatures will be in 50s. 

Rest of the Week: Partly cloudy and mild. High temperatures will be near-average in the upper 70s. We may be in the lower 80s by the end of the week.  

Tracking the Tropics: Two areas of interest in the open Atlantic and then one in the Caribbean. No threats to our area for now. Both areas have a medium chance for development.
