FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Showers, thunderstorms likely Thursday

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Showers and t-storms are likely Thursday, with the potential for multiple rounds of rain through the day.

Scattered showers will be possible for the morning commute, but it will be a much milder start with temperatures in the mid 50s. The Storm Prediction Center continues to post a marginal risk (threat level 1/5) of severe weather for all of our area. It looks as though the best potential for any isolated strong storms would be during the afternoon and evening.

A cold front sweeps through the area Thursday night, but clouds and a few light showers will linger into Friday, which sees a return of cooler weather as highs only reach the mid 50s. Clouds may very well linger for much of Saturday also, but it looks like we’ll get through the weekend dry.

The extended forecast points toward seasonably cool and mainly dry weather for much of next week.
