BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - It’s one of the last two holiday shopping weekends, and the weather is going to cooperate. We stay mainly dry today with maybe a passing pocket of sprinkles here or there.

Measurable rainfall is finished with this storm system. Clouds will be slow to clear out today, so our Saturday will remain kind of dreary and also cool. Temperatures won’t move much through the day staying in the low to mid 50s. Clearing will start to occur overnight into Sunday morning. Morning lows Sunday will dip into the low 40s.

Temperatures will stay pretty close to normal for much of next week. Morning lows will stay in the mid 40s and afternoon highs in the mid 60s through Thursday.

Wednesday into Thursday our next storm system and weak cold front arrive. The storm system will produce scattered showers and maybe a rumble of thunder. Rainfall totals will be less than 1 inch and manageable for those that receive rain. A very slight cool down occurs heading into the following weekend.

It looks to stay dry Saturday, but we may see a shower or two pop up Sunday. By Christmas Eve temperatures are back to near normal with an isolated shower possible.
