BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The colder air will hang around into the first half of the work/school week. You might wake up to some frost Monday and Tuesday mornings as morning lows dip into the mid 30°s.
The kids will want to bundle up for the morning bus stop, and the adults might need the ice scrapers for the car for the morning commute. Temperatures during the afternoon will warm to the mid 50°s both Monday and Tuesday. A steady warming trend will begin Wednesday.
Clouds will build Wednesday, but all in all it will be a fairly nice and comfortable weather day. We stay dry Wednesday before a series of upper air disturbances cause rain chances to go up to end the week.
Rain will be numerous Thursday, scattered Friday, and likely on Saturday.
A strong Arctic cold front is set to arrive late Saturday. Long range models are now suggesting a PM time frame for shower activity to occur which is better news for Louisiana Marathon activities during the early morning.
After the front passes some wrap around moisture may allow for a stray light shower mainly north of Baton Rouge Sunday. Sunday will be bitterly cold with lows near freezing and highs only in the mid 40°s. It will be breezy Sunday making for a much colder feel to the air.
After a light freeze for everyone Monday morning we expect to see a subtle warm up to start the following work/school week. Rain returns by mid week as our next storm system arrives.
