FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Cloud cover continues

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - As of mid-morning, cloud cover continues to be rather stubborn throughout a portion of our viewing area.

Since the predawn hours, it’s been chilly - early temperatures dropped into the lower 40°s, which is now nearly 10 degrees cooler than the norm of 51° for the middle part of March. But we’re still looking for decreasing clouds; more of a sun/cloud mix through early afternoon, then becoming partly cloudy – light NE winds and a daytime time topping out in the mid/upper 60°s.

Overnight, a “dry cold front” will be shifting southward, reinforcing the moisture free and the still slightly below normal temperatures – partly cloudy and cool – a low of 46°; tomorrow, quiet and dry, a few high clouds – a high of 68°.
