Tonight: A clear sky, calm wind, and dry air will lead to another comfortable night and morning in the Baton Rouge metro. Out-the-door temperatures will be in the low and mid 60s.

Thursday: It’s still going to be pleasant for September standards, but you’ll notice the humidity will begin to gradually climb. We will stay mostly dry and mostly sunny. High temperatures will still be in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees.  

Friday & Weekend: High humidity returns to Southeast Louisiana! A couple of spotty showers return to coastal areas on Friday, but widely scattered showers and storms may pop up both Saturday and Sunday. Best chance for rain this weekend will be near the coast. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s to the lower 90s. Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.  

Next Week: A ridge of high pressure will keep our weather pattern mostly dry and hot. High temperatures will back up in the low and mid 90s and we’re mostly rain-free. 

Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Depression Seven will become Tropical Storm Fiona and track toward the Lesser Antilles and then begin its journey near Hispaniola. It will run into some drier air, shear, and potentially the mountainous terrain of Hispaniola. Too early to tell if it will track toward the Gulf or curve to the north. Plenty of time to watch!
