FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Rain expected to continue through week, into weekend

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Overall, it was quiet and mainly dry out-the-door for your Tuesday morning – areas of patchy dense fog caused a few challenges during the early drive, but no Dense Fog Advisory was issued for our viewing area.

Temperatures started out in the low to mid 70°s, for a change, but just like yesterday, our high will top out in the lower 90°s prior to the rain-cooled air by late afternoon. Expect increasing coverage of showers/storms popping up on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar, starting around the noon hour with more coverage as the afternoon wears on – a 60% to 70% coverage, some locally heavy rainfall possible; be cautious of wet, slick streets during your evening commute.

Overnight, partly cloudy – lingering isolated showers, a low of 75°; and tomorrow, it’s a continuation of “umbrella weather”, a 70% coverage of rain and storms, a high of 91°.
