FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Changing weather just in time for holiday weekend

FIRST ALERT NOON FORECAST: Thursday, July 3

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Heat, humidity and Saharan dust will headline our weather for one more day before umbrella weather returns tomorrow.

In the meantime, at least our early morning temperature dropped below 80°, but just barely, and it still feels like (even in the predawn hours) the low/mid 80°s.
