Wednesday Morning: Wet Roads for Travel; Much Drier for Turkey Day

Weather

StormTracker Team Forecast…The cold front has moved through the Baton Rouge metro as of the mid-morning hours. Rain will continue to taper through the morning hours. Clouds may break up a little by the afternoon, allowing the area to rebound into the upper 60s. Plan on a chilly night/Thanksgiving morning as temperatures drop into the upper 40s to lower 50s. There won’t be much sunshine on Thanksgiving, but there won’t be any rain, so that’s the good news there! Temperatures will be seasonal in the upper 60s.

If you will be out late on Thanksgiving night or early for Black Friday, you’ll need a jacket as temperatures will be back in the upper 40s to lower 50s. A mix of clouds and some sun is in store for us on Black Friday. Temperatures will warm into the lower 70s by the afternoon.

Black Friday Travel Hazards

Our forecast remains rain-free until Saturday, which is not ideal considering the LSU vs Texas A&M game is set to kick off at 6:00 P.M. in Death Valley. Showers and storms are likely late on Saturday and into the overnight hours. Some storms may be strong to severe. Before the rain moves in, it will be warm and muggy with temperatures in the upper 70s. If you’re headed to New Orleans to cheer on the Southern Jags, you will need to pay attention to the weather, as well. The exact timing and intensity of the system are ultimately still unknown at this time, but we will keep you posted.

Saturday Travel Hazards

The Storm Prediction Center has already placed the entire area under a Slight Risk (threat level 2 out of 5) for severe weather Saturday night. The threat would be damaging wind and brief tornadoes. If you’ve missed the cooler weather, Sunday and next week will be cooler with highs in the 50s and 60s.
