Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today & Tonight: High pressure will keep us dry, but a southeast wind will begin to add moisture to the region ahead of our next system. Warmer-than-normal today with highs in the mid and upper 60s. Clouds increase tonight and it won’t be as cold. Morning lows will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Wednesday: Partly sunny skies with highs in the lower 70s. Scattered showers and isolated storms will begin to pop up during the daytime hours. Storms will organize into a squall line out west before it tracks to the east and through the Baton Rouge metro during the late evening/nighttime hours. The line will track from northwest to southeast and should clear the area by pre-dawn hours on Thursday. A few storms may become strong or marginally severe. Damaging wind would be the main threat, but a tornado or two will also be possible. Either way, heavy rain and some gusty winds are expected with the line of storms. Rainfall totals look to be 1-2″ with locally higher amounts. Temperatures will drop in wake of the cold front. Daybreak temperatures will be in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Christmas Eve: Rain will not be an issue past sunrise. Skies will clear, but temperatures will struggle to warm thanks to a strong northerly wind. Afternoon temperatures will be in the 40s. Plan on breezy and cold conditions on Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Eve.

Christmas: A frosty start in the 20s and 30s Christmas morning. Mostly sunny skies are expected throughout the day. Afternoon temperatures will be in the lower 50s.

This Weekend: Warmer with slight rain chances Sunday.
