BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The beautiful weather continues into Easter Sunday and beyond. High pressure will move overhead overnight and then transition to our east during the afternoon Easter Sunday. This will set the stage for a subtle warming trend as we move into the start of the new week.
Temperatures will be chilly for sunrise services tomorrow, but a quick warm up will lead to a very comfortable afternoon with highs in the upper 70s. We are back into the 80s for much of the week beginning Monday.
Monday and Tuesday will be dry and great weather days to do outdoor activities with the kids while they are on spring break. Wednesday will have a few showers, but most will stay dry. Wednesday will be a good day to do yard work, allowing for yards to dry out before our next rain maker arrives Thursday.
Showers and t-storms look likely at some point Thursday. Uncertainty remains as to whether severe weather will be possible Thursday. The storm system will begin to exit Friday. Long range weather models disagree right now on the intensity of the storm system and the exact day it will exit the area. Therefore, the First Alert Forecast keeps a few lingering showers even into Saturday.
Temperatures will be at or very near normal through the upcoming week. By the following week temperatures will start to be above normal, but still comfortable.
