Wednesday Morning: Showers and storms then a big temperature drop; Nice Easter Weekend

Weather

A Wind Advisory is in effect from 6 PM Wednesday through 8 AM Thursday. We could have frequent gusts over 30-40 mph once a cold front passes. Secure loose objects and use extreme caution on the roads. There could be some downed tree limbs and possibly power outages.

Today & Tonight: A strong cold front will move into the region today. This will lead to numerous showers and storms after 11 AM. We will have to watch for strong to severe storms, too. We are under a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 of 5) for severe storms. Heavy rain and damaging wind will be the main concerns, but hail and a brief tornado will also be possible. High temperatures will be achieved early in the afternoon before temperatures drop into the 60s then 50s during the mid/late afternoon and evening hours. Overnight temperature near 42°F.

Thursday: Sunny, breezy, and much cooler. High near 62°F. Overnight temperature near 37°F. Some areas of patchy frost may be possible north and east of Baton Rouge.

Good Friday: Very nice and pleasant. High temperature near 63°F. Overnight lows near 39°F.

Easter Weekend: A bit warmer with sun and clouds in place. High near 69°F on Saturday and 74°F on Easter Sunday. Isolated shower cannot completely be ruled out, but we are leaving rain chances out of the forecast for now. Morning temperature near 48°F on Easter Sunday.

Next Week: Mostly dry to start the week. Temperatures will be warmer in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
