FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Warmer days ahead

First Alert Weather First Alert Weather
BATON ROUGE, LA -

YOUR QUICKCAST:

TODAY:  Cold AM start – sunny PM, slight warming trend; a high of 56°

TONIGHT:  not “as” cold – partly cloudy, a low of 39°

TOMORROW:  partly cloudy, SE winds – mild – a high of 66°

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

-Large area of high pressure means a continuing quiet and dry late December weather pattern throughout SE LA and SE MS – for, at least, the next 24 to 36 hours.

-This morning will likely be “the last” really cold morning for several days – we were at, or below, freezing for several hours, not above freezing at metro airport until after 8:00 am.

-High pressure will begin to shift eastward later tonight and another cold front (but MUCH weaker than the last) will slide through late Wednesday/early Thursday.

-This cold front will NOT cause a major temperature fluctuation and it doesn’t appear to have much moisture content (only 20% rain coverage late Wednesday; 10% and spotty early Thursday)

-Only “slightly cooler” after the passage of the cold front; Friday a high in the lower 60s … and, of course, as we move into Christmas weekend, temperatures will trend well "above the norm" of 63°

-Christmas Eve will be mild – a few spotty showers – a high of 72°

-Christmas Day – a few isolated showers (only 20% coverage) – a high of 75° (and, not out of the question that a few neighborhoods MAY reach 80°)
