Cold front delivers big chill Sunday, early next week
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Widespread rains will arrive starting mid-day Saturday into the afternoon as a cold front slides across Louisiana, meaning much colder temperatures for Sunday with a light freeze expected for some WAFB neighborhoods on Monday morning.
Clouds will begin to roll in tonight with spotty showers possible for Saturday’s sunrise. Daybreak temperatures will be in the low to mid 50°s and climb into the low to mid 60°s by mid-day ahead of the cold front. That cold front brings widespread rain and maybe even a rumble or two of thunder but no severe weather.
The front slides east of the WAFB area by mid/late afternoon with winds picking up behind the front and temperatures starting to fall quickly. While the rain will come to an end after the front passes, clouds will linger through the night and into Sunday morning. It stays breezy-to-windy overnight and into Sunday morning as well with sunrise temperatures on Sunday and mid 30°s for metro Baton Rouge.
Clouds slowly thin on Sunday but it stays breezy through the day with highs struggling to reach 50° for much of the WAFB region. Plan for a light freeze on Monday morning, MLK Day, but sunshine through the day should get afternoon temperatures into the upper 50°s. After another cold morning start for Tuesday, Tuesday afternoon temperatures reach the mid 60°s under fair skies. The next rainmaker is scheduled for Wednesday into Thursday with a run of very chilly days expected behind that mid-week front.
