Tonight: Mainly clear and comfortable. Morning temperatures will dip down into the mid 60s for most areas, but some areas north and east of Baton Rouge will dip down into the lower 60s. 

Friday: It’s still going to be fair for September standards, but you’ll notice the humidity will begin to gradually climb. We will stay mostly dry and mostly sunny. High temperatures will still be in the upper 80s to the lower 90s. A stray shower cannot be ruled out, but most will stay completely dry. 

Weekend: Pop-up showers are possible Saturday and Sunday. Most areas will stay dry and hot. Best chance for any rain this weekend will be near the coast. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s to the lower 90s. Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s. It’s going to be more humid over the weekend and into next week. 

Next Week: A ridge of high pressure will keep our weather pattern mostly dry and hot. High temperatures will back up in the low and mid 90s and we’re mostly rain-free. Autumn officially begins next Thursday and it will feel like summer – No surprise there! 

Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Storm Fiona is forecast to track toward the northern Leeward Islands and then Hispaniola. It will run into some drier air, shear, and potentially the mountains in Hispaniola. Most model guidance has it curving to the north-northwest, but this can change. Plenty of time to watch.
