FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Highs in the 80s Monday; Tuesday say hello to the 90s

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Temperatures in the low/mid 70°s started off our Monday morning – the “norm” this time of year is 66°, so we’re running some 7 to 9 degrees above normal.

No activity – yet – on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar but later today, some neighborhoods will see a few isolated to scattered showers (primarily during peak daytime heating and overall instability) popping up later this afternoon. Fortunately, any storms that may develop should be on the weak side with only minor lightning strikes and brief downpours expected; heating up with more humidity – a high today near 90°.

Overnight, partly cloudy, some patchy fog could become somewhat problematic – a low of 73°; tomorrow, it’s the beginning of a stagnant weather pattern – no mention of rain, partly cloudy, breezy and warming up – a high of 91°.
