FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Rain chances increasing over Memorial Day weekend

FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Fri., May 22 - Rainy weekend ahead

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - It’s a steamy Friday morning but at least it’s dry for your early out-the-door!

Temperatures in the low to mid 70°s on the way to a high (again) near 90°, after topping out at 91° yesterday!

Under partly cloudy skies, we’re expecting only a 30% coverage of showers/isolated storms during the afternoon hours and this will be the end of the relatively “dry days” for a while!

Tonight, partly cloudy and humid with a low in the mid 70°s.

This weekend and into Memorial Day, get the umbrellas out and have them on standby. We’re looking at a 50% - 70% coverage of rain each afternoon, highs topping out in the mid/upper 80°s.
