Wednesday Morning: Returning to the 80s before a cold front cools us down

Weather

Today: We’ll continue to warm with highs in the uper-70s, even the low-80s. Today will be partly cloudy as moisture flow from the Gulf of Mexico increases. A cold will aproach overnight and push through tomorrow morning. Expect cloudy skies overnight with a few showers overnight. 

Thursday: As a trough of low pressure moves to our northeast, it will bring in south to southwesterly flow. This will lead to an increase in moisture flow from the Gulf of Mexico. Assuming temperatures can reach at least the mid-70s, which is the forecasted highs, we could see some showers develop on Thursday along a cold front moving through with mostly cloudy skies, otherwise. The timing of these showers is mostly in the morning, before the front passes. After the passage of the front, expect clearing skies throughout the afternoon. Stay up late Thursday or wake up early Friday to see a partial (almost full) lunar eclipse!

Friday: Cooler air settles in with mostly sunny skies and slightly drier conditions. Highs will be near 65 degrees in Baton Rouge.  

Saturday-Sunday: Nice weather holds with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low-70s. 

Monday-Tuesday: Showers may be possible on Sunday-Monday but, the chances look low for now. Its all along a cold front that will push through on Monday and lead to highs on Tuesday around 63 degrees. 

Tracking the Tropics: No impacts to Baton Rouge expected.
