Rain likely late Monday
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - It won’t be as cold Monday morning as it was over the weekend, but still bundle up as temperatures come close or drop just below the freezing mark. Areas north and east of Baton Rouge will experience a light freeze. Take care of the people and pets area wide and the plants for those areas expecting freezing temperatures. You don’t need to drip a faucet Sunday night.
An upper level low will be moving across the Northern Gulf of Mexico late Monday into Tuesday morning. Rain will trend likely Monday evening and night into the predawn Tuesday. We will gradually dry out Tuesday mid-morning. Rain amounts will be highest along the coast with pockets of 1+”. Inland areas will average between 0.25″-0.75″. Temperatures will remain cooler than normal through the remainder of the week thanks to a cold front that passes Tuesday afternoon.
We’ll see a brief/ light freeze Thursday morning. Another cold front is set to arrive Friday. This front may trigger a shower or two, but most are expected to remain dry. Best rain opportunity looks to be along the coast. A surge of colder air will lead to upper 20°s for early Saturday morning. Other than a cold Saturday, the weather over the weekend is looking fairly nice with plenty of sunshine in the current forecast.
A steady warming trend will take place during the first half of the following week with temperatures returning to near and slightly above normal.
