BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - We get a break from the heat thanks to increasing rain chances for the first half of the Labor Day work week.

Rain chances will be in the likely category Monday & Tuesday and remain high into Wednesday as the viewing area sees a surge in moisture as a cold front approaches from the north and a tropical wave moves across the central Gulf of Mexico.

At this time, it doesn’t look like the tropical wave will develop any further in the Gulf of Mexico. But as its moisture spreads across the central Gulf Coast states, periods of heavy rain will be possible.

The initial cold front will stall across the area, helping to be a trigger for showers and t-storms. A secondary cold front will replace the first front and actually make its way through the area into the Gulf of Mexico by late in the week.

We will transition from a wet weather pattern to a dry, less humid weather pattern by the end of the week. The weather will be rather enjoyable by Friday and through Saturday. By Sunday the front washes out and moisture levels return bringing humidity back and rain chances by next week.
