Tranquil fall weather coming to an end
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The nice weather we have been enjoying for the last several days is coming to an end.
Humidity levels will be increasing as we roll into the first half of the new work/school week. This will induce warmer morning starts, more humid afternoons, and some chances for rain. Keep an umbrella on standby for the work/school week as rain chances will range between 20% and 60% daily.
Monday morning won’t be uncomfortable but you’ll notice the difference. Morning lows Monday will be 5-10 degrees warmer than the weekend. Afternoon highs Monday may jump into the upper 80°s for a few areas. Feels like temperatures may reach the low 90°s. Most stay dry Monday afternoon with just a few pop-up late afternoon t-showers.
The best opportunity for rain will come during the middle of the week. Tuesday and Wednesday will have some pockets of heavy rain embedded within a few t-storms. At this time, it doesn’t look like severe weather will be an issue or widespread flooding.
We trend drier by next weekend as an influx of drier air is set to arrive. This will only be short-lived as slight rain chances look to return by the beginning of the following work/school week.
The tropics remain busy with two areas of interest in the Eastern Atlantic along with Major Hurricane Sam. Thankfully, Sam will be turning out to sea and doesn’t pose any threat to the US.
