BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Monday morning begins warm and muggy in the low to mid 60°s with isolated showers in areas of fog. That fog could be dense in spots.

A cold front working across the state on Monday will deliver showers and thunderstorms across the entire viewing area through the middle of the day and into the afternoon. The NWS Storm Prediction Center has all of the WAFB viewing area under a “Marginal Risk” (1-out-of-5) for severe storms, with isolated pockets of damaging winds being the primary threat.

After highs in the 70°s on Monday ahead of the cold front, temperatures will drop off substantially for Tuesday, with highs struggling to make 60° from most WAFB neighborhoods. That cold front is expected to stall near or along the coast Monday evening and then linger there into Wednesday.

While the severe weather threat will have ended, an unsettled pattern will persist through the week. The cool-down on Tuesday does not last long either, with temperatures back into the 70°s by Thursday and possibly approaching 80° by Friday.

Another cold front is scheduled to arrive on Saturday.
