You’ll need the coats for back to school/work Monday. Lows Monday morning will dip into the upper 30°s with afternoon highs only reaching the mid 50°s.

Areas north and east of Baton Rouge will likely experience a brief light freeze Tuesday morning as even colder air filters south.

Bring in the pets and cover the sensitive vegetation Monday night.

By Tuesday afternoon the local area will begin to see a warming trend. That warming trend lasts into Friday as our next storm system and weak cold front arrives.

Expect showers and maybe even some t-storms late Thursday into early Friday as the storm system moves overhead.

This cold front won’t deliver much change in temperature as we move into the following weekend.

A stronger cold front is starting to show up in the long range models towards the start of the next work/school week.
