Tuesday Morning: Much-welcomed drop in humidity; Higher rain chances this weekend

Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

TODAY: A weak front will push to the south of the Baton Rouge metro later today. This will bring us some slightly drier air. Not likely going to see much in the way of rain with this front. If you live near the coast, you will have a better shot for rain today. Rain chance for the coast is around 30%. Rain chance for the BR Proud viewing area is 10%. Sun and a few passing clouds with highs in the low and mid 90s.

TONIGHT: Mainly clear and quiet with temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s for most areas.

WEDNESDAY: The front may stall out near the coast and we could see a shower or two, but most stay dry. High near 92°F. The lower humidity will make it feel better outside. Overnight temperature near 69°F.

THURSDAY: Isolated showers are possible as the front begins to lift back to the north. Rain chance is around 10-20%. High near 92°F. Overnight temperature near 72°F.

FRIDAY: High pressure builds in the Gulf of Mexico, which means moisture will gradually return to the area. Rain chance is near 20%. Feels like temperatures will be in the lower 100s. High near 93°F.

WEEKEND: Rain chances begin to increase to 30-40%. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy otherwise. Highs in the lower 90s. Feels like temperatures will be in the 100s.

TRACKING THE TROPICS: Isaias will continue to move up the East Coast after making landfall in North Carolina as a Category 1 Hurricane. It will bring flooding and high winds to the Mid-Atlantic to the New England. Isolated tornadoes and storm surge will be possible for these areas, as well.

There is an area of disturbed weather north of the Windward Islands (Invest 94L) that has a low chance for formation. No tropical activity in the Gulf for now.
