Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Rain chances in the Baton Rouge Metro are around 30-40%. Any storm that develops will have the potential to produce heavy rain, lightning, and gusty wind. Mix of sun and clouds otherwise with highs in the lower 90s, but it will feel like the 100°F-106°F.

Tonight: Mainly quiet and warm overnight. Low near 76°F.

Thursday: Invest 91-L will move across the northern Gulf, which will increase our rain chances on Thursday and Friday. Best chance for heavy rain and breezy conditions will be near the coast. Rain chance is currently around 70% for the Baton Rouge metro. Highs in the upper 80s. Overnight lows in the mid 70s.

Friday: Numerous showers and storms are likely as the disturbance begins to move toward Texas. Plenty of tropical moisture will be present, so it won’t take much to get the rain. Heavy rain will be the main concern, but more so for coastal and offshore areas. Rain chance is around 70-80%. Highs right around 88°F.

Saturday: Scattered to numerous showers and storms. Rain chance is currently around 50-60%. High temperature near 90°F.

Sunday: Rain chance will be a touch lower around 40-50%. High near 90°F.

Monday: Scattered showers and storms are likely. Rain chance is around 40%. High near 91°F.

Tuesday: Scattered showers and storms are likely. Rain chance is 50-60%. High near 91°F.

Tracking the Tropics: Invest 91-L is currently in the Gulf and will continue to track to the west-northwest. For now, it looks like a tropical depression could develop and may track toward Texas. Development or not, it will likely bring bouts of heavy rain and higher than normal tides and rough seas to the Gulf Coast Thursday and Friday and possibly into Saturday. Stay tuned.

Tropical Storm Gonzalo is moving across the Main Development Region in the Atlantic. It is forecast to track toward the Windward Islands by the weekend. It is forecast to weaken once it moves into the Caribbean, but it is definitely worth watching.
