A lot to get to this morning as you plan out your Friday and the weekend to come. 

Diane Deaton has a look at that forecast that may get a little interesting. 

Plus the sports world will take over: LSU Gymnastics looking for a national title, the spring game at Tiger Stadium, and the Pelicans going for the sweep in the first round of the playoffs. Oh yes, they won last night. 

And Liz Koh is live with a lot of “orange potatoes.” It’s a big event for the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and the LSU Food Pantry, so grab your sweet potatoes and get to campus. 

We’ll see you for 9News This Morning, The Big Extra Hour, and The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.

WEATHER:

As expected, it’s a chilly April morning. You’ll definitely notice the change, with temperatures starting off in the mid/upper 40s, some 15 to 17 degrees cooler than 24 hours ago. Today, look forward to returning sunshine, light northeast winds, and an afternoon high in the lower 70s. Overnight, expect partly cloudy conditions and not nearly as cool, with a low of 52°. For Saturday, expect increasing clouds, scattered showers late, and a high of 76°. On Sunday, get the umbrellas ready. Showers and storms are likely, primarily during the morning hours, with rain ending later in the day, and a high in the mid/upper 70s.
