Storms arriving late Wednesday

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Hopefully you made the most of our cooler weather over the last couple of days with warmer, more humid conditions expected through the remainder of the week. Wednesday starts out in the mid 60°s and will see highs climb into the mid 80°s under a mix of sun and clouds. Most of us get through the afternoon dry, but showers and t-storms are expected to arrive late Wednesday night in association with a cold front. The Storm Prediction Center has a 'marginal' risk of severe weather posted for much of our area, with a 'slight' risk to the northwest of Baton Rouge. Thursday will give us a brief taste once again of some less humid air before even warmer weather returns by Friday. In fact, some areas could hit 90° as we close out the workweek! The next big weather maker arrives on Sunday with widespread showers and t-storms expected. Severe weather could be in the mix along with some locally heavy rainfall. Stay tuned... - Steve Caparotta & Jay Grymes / WAFB Storm Team
