Mainly clear, cold overnight with a wake-up freeze
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Skies will stay mainly clear through the night and into Thursday morning with Baton Rouge daybreak temperatures dropping to around 30°.
A few fair-weather clouds slip in during the day with sunshine taking afternoon temperatures into the upper 50°s to around 60°. Clouds increase Thursday night into early Friday morning but we don’t anticipate any rainfall with them.
Those clouds thin through the day on Friday. Friday morning starts out in the upper 30°s for Baton Rouge with a cool afternoon under fair to partly cloudy skies and a high in the low 50°s. Most of the WAFB region can expect a freeze for Saturday morning with many getting a second freeze on Sunday morning. Sunshine rules the weekend with highs in the low 50°s on Saturday and climbing into the low to mid 60°s on Sunday.
The weak cold front will arrive Friday afternoon to help reinforce the cooler weather. There won’t be moisture for this front to work. Therefore, we are keeping Friday dry.
We might see a shower or two on Monday, the last day of January, but the vast majority of the area stays dry. However, it will be a different story for Tuesday, Wednesday, and into Thursday of next week with scattered-to-numerous rains over that three-day period. Area rain totals for the three days could top 1.0″ or more. While it is too soon to confidently assess any severe weather potential, that will need to be monitored next week.
