FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Summer heat rules the day

FIRST ALERT 12 P.M. FORECAST: Tuesday, July 21

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Summer heat and humidity will be the rule of the day, though it likely won’t remain dry throughout the afternoon.

Steamy, but dry pretty much sums up your out-the-door weather Tuesday morning. Expect partly cloudy skies in the morning and more of a sun/cloud mix this afternoon. There will be 30% to 40% rain coverage, a high of 93° and you’re describing a relatively typical July day!

Overnight, not much change from the ongoing “steam machine.” There will be a low of 76°.

Wednesday, perhaps a slightly better chance you’ll need your umbrella with a 50% coverage of showers/storms. The daytime high Wednesday will be in the lower 90°s, which means another “feels like” temperature in the lower triple digits!
