BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A somewhat unsettled weather pattern will take shape for most of the remainder of the week. Southerly flow will help pump in Gulf and Pacific moisture. There won’t be much of a trigger for showers and t-storms except daytime heat and sea breeze boundaries. Rain chances will range between 20-30% Monday through Thursday.

In addition to the rain gear, be sure to grab the short sleeves. Temperatures will be trending much warmer with lows in the mid 60°s and highs in the 80°s Tuesday through Thursday. With the warmer than normal temperatures, comes a risk for fog each morning. Breezy winds should limit the potential for thick fog.

Our next cold front slowly arrives on Friday. The front will work its way through the local area during the morning hours. This will create a chance for scattered to numerous showers. At this time, severe weather does not look to be an issue with this cold front. Manageable rainfall amounts of less than 0.5″ of rain for most will occur.
