Tuesday Morning: Heavy rain & damaging winds possible Wednesday before a big cooldown

Weather

Today: It will be a little cloudier than Monday with partly cloudy skies and still warm temperatures in the mid-80s. Humidity remains high as well. A cloudier night will lead to overnight lows in the mid-upper-60s. 

Wednesday: A cold front arrives late on Wednesday with rain arriving ahead and along the cold front. Some of these storms could be severe. The main threat will be damaging wind gusts above 60 mph, but isolate tornadoes will also be possible as will isolated flooding in some of the heaviest rains. Daytime highs will be limited to right around 80 degrees. Overnight lows could get into the upper-50s with clearing skies.  

Thursday-Sunday: Expect it to remain dry and cool for the rest of the week and weekend thanks to the passage of the front. Highs will be in the low-70s to upper-60s Thursday through Saturday with overnight temperatures dropping to near 50 or even in the upper-40s. Halloween night while trick-or-treating will be cool in the 60s and 50s so bring a jacket! 

Tracking the Tropics: No impacts to Baton Rouge expected with no systems of concern.
