FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Rain chances on the low side for next few days

FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Tues. June 25 - Marginal risk of severe weather

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Heading into late morning, we’re still looking at only limited activity on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar and it’s heating up, temperatures already in the mid/upper 80°s with a “feels like” temperature in the upper 90°s.

Anticipate increasing coverage of showers and perhaps an isolated storm later this afternoon – all of SE LA and SW MS under a “low-end” risk for severe weather today (primarily a few severe storms possible, along with strong damaging winds) a 30% to 40% coverage of rain, our afternoon high winding up in the lower 90°s.

Overnight, partly cloudy and rather steamy – a low of 74°; tomorrow, only a few spotty to isolated showers; expect another hot and humid late June day, a high Wednesday of 93°.
