FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Temps Will Adjust For A Very Comfortable Weekend

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A beautiful start to our Friday gives way to a warmer afternoon as highs soar into the mid 80°s under increasing cloud cover.

We’ll also see a slight chance of showers by the afternoon and a stray shower can’t be ruled out lingering into the evening hours for tonight’s high school football games.

Mild weather continues on Saturday, but a good deal of cloud cover should keep highs in the upper 70°s instead of the 80°s that we expect today.

Saturday’s rain chances will run about 30% as a cold front approaches from the north. With that front moving in, isolated showers will remain possible for the LSU game Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.

In the wake of Saturday’s cold front, sunshine and cooler temperatures will settle in for Sunday with highs only reaching the low 70°s.

Heading into next week, an unsettled pattern takes shape, with good rain chances in the Tuesday – Thursday window, possibly even lingering into Friday.
