Wednesday Morning: Severe weather Wednesday, much cooler the rest of the week

Weather

Today: A cold front arrives today with rain arriving ahead and along the cold front. Many of these storms could be severe. The Storm Prediction Center has Baton Rouge and west under a Moderate Risk (level 3 out of 5) for severe weather. The main threat will be damaging wind gusts above 60 mph, but isolated tornadoes will also be possible as will flooding in some of the heaviest downpours. The timing for most of the severe weather will be between noon and 6pm. Daytime highs will be limited to right around 80 degrees. Overnight lows could get into the upper-50s with clearing skies.  

Thursday: Expect it to remain dry and cool for the rest of the week thanks to the passage of the cold front. Highs will be in the low-70s Thursday with overnight temperatures dropping to near 50 or even in the upper-40s.  

Friday: Friday will be a bit nippy with highs only reaching about 65 degrees and overnight lows dropping to near 50 or below. This is perfect sweater weather! It will also be sunny so you’re still need to grab the sunglasses.  

Halloween Weekend: Expect more sunshine and dry weather to continue this weekend. Pleasant weather stays in place for your spooky weekend. Highs will be in the low-to-mid 70s. Halloween night while trick-or-treating will be cool in the 60s and 50s so bring a jacket! 

Next Week: We stay dry and sunny with highs in the mid-70s.  

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