  • Today will be the last completely dry day over the course of the next several days. An unsettled weather pattern is headed for the local area. Today skies will be partly cloudy but dry. Afternoon temperatures will be comfortably cool in the mid 60°s. Temperatures this evening will slowly fall through the 50°s into the 40°s. Overnight a weak cold front will slip through the area. Moisture will spread over the front and could cause a few stray showers primarily south of Baton Rouge Friday morning into the early afternoon. Most will remain dry Friday. Temperatures will be cooler especially by afternoon. The jacket weather will last into Saturday as highs stay in the 50°s. A few showers will be possible late Saturday, but once again most will stay dry. Saturday will be your day for Christmas shopping. On Sunday, our next storm system arrives triggering widespread showers and a few t-storms. Severe weather at this time doesn't appear to be much of an issue. Rain appears to stay around through the first part of next week, but forecast confidence on coverage and amounts of rain remain low at this time. Temperatures will be fairly mild as we begin next week.
