BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Wednesday is the first official day of Autumn and the weather will actually feel like fall. A cold front pushes through the local area late Tuesday night delivering the change of season weather pattern.

We go from warm and humid conditions with pop-up t-showers to drier, less humid, and cooler weather conditions to close out the week. The kids might even want light jackets for the morning bus stops Thursday and Friday as early morning temperatures dip into the mid 50°s.

A subtle warming trend will begin by the weekend but it still will be gorgeous weather for your outdoor plans. Long range models have made some changes to the weather forecast for the middle of next week. Weather models now suggest some mid-level disturbances may try and move through the local area triggering a return of rain chances. For now the forecast calls for isolated to sct’d t-showers Tuesday through Friday.

The tropics remain active as we track 4 separate areas of interest. The two named storms T.S. Peter and Rose are barely holding on and are forecast to weaken as they move north into the open waters of the Atlantic. The remnant of Odette are forecast to remain in the Northern Atlantic. Invest 98-L is moving west across the Atlantic and is likely to become our next named storm Sam in the coming days. It doesn’t appear to be an issue for the Gulf Region at this time.
