BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The last of the clouds clear out this evening with clear skies letting temperatures fall into the low 30°s for much of the viewing area on Tuesday morning.

Sunshine and light winds through the day will allow temperatures to climb up to 60° or more for the afternoon across much of the WAFB region. Metro Baton Rouge morning lows are likely to be in the 30°s for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday too.

However, sunshine each day will help drive afternoon temperatures into the mid 60°s for Wednesday with highs in the upper 60°s to near 70° for Thursday and Friday. A ‘dry’ cold front is expected to cross the state over the weekend but produces little, if any, rain for our viewing area.

Cooler air behind the front will mean highs on Sunday in the 50°s rather than the 60°s. And for now, the extended outlook stays dry for next Monday and Tuesday (Feb 14-15) with the possibility of rain returning by mid-week.
