BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - No need for umbrellas any time soon, but you WILL need coats and gloves, especially Tuesday morning.
In the meantime, it’s really nice to see the sun again Monday. After a morning start in the upper 30°s, we’ll wind up with an afternoon high topping out at 53 degrees. Overnight, the forecast calls for clear skies and light winds that will allow our low to drop to 30 degrees, so expect a light freeze and a very cold out-the-door Tuesday morning.
There will be more sunshine Tuesday and a bit of a warming trend, with temps in the upper 50s (overnight Tuesday of 35 degrees). By Wednesday, a few more clouds will roll around and temps won’t get as cold. The high will be in the mid-60s.
Our Thursday forecast includes a return of moisture, so umbrellas will be a good idea again. There will be a 70 percent coverage of showers and possible storms, as well. At this point, it appears there is definitely some potential for severe weather Thursday afternoon/evening, but there’s still enough uncertainly that the Storm Prediction Center is holding off with any issuance of a severe weather threat for southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi.
