WEATHER: 

  • Thursday has now taken the crown for the hottest day of 2017 with a high that climbed all the way to 97° in Baton Rouge. We may not quite hit the upper 90°s today, but it will be another hot one with highs in the mid 90°s and slightly better rain chances at 30% - 40%. Most rains will diminish this evening with partly cloudy skies and just a slight chance of showers overnight. Saturday morning lows will bottom out in the mid 70°s. As promised, rain chances will climb into the weekend. Look for a 50% chance of showers and t-storms on Saturday rising to 60% by Sunday. Increased cloud cover and rainfall should keep highs a bit closer to 90° through the weekend.
