FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Mon., Oct. 26 - Quiet Monday before Zeta moves into Gulf

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - It’s a quiet and dry start to the last Monday in October. Nothing on First Alert Doppler radar, nor do we expect any activity today.

Good visibility this morning, but once again a bit too warm. Temperatures in the low/mid 60°s, trending some 8 to 10 degrees warmer than early Sunday morning.

Look forward to plenty of sunshine, light east winds, and a high in the lower 80°s.

Overnight, expect partly cloudy skies and a low only dropping to 65°.

Tomorrow, clouds increase along with increasing coverage of rain (60%) as temps reach a high of 83°.

Tropical Storm Zeta has increased in strength overnight and has picked up speed. Zeta is expected to become a Category 1 hurricane today and will be in the southern Gulf of Mexico tomorrow.
