BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Temperatures will be trending warmer for most of the week ahead.

It won’t be nearly as cold out the door Monday morning as lows only dip into the low 40°s. You’ll still want a jacket, but you may be putting the jacket away by afternoon.

Our next storm system will arrive early Tuesday morning. A line of showers and t-storms is forecast to develop ahead of a leading trough. A Marginal Risk (1 out of 5) for severe weather is in place for a portion of the local area Tuesday morning. This line of storms could produce one or two strong to severe t-storms. May concerns will be wind and hail potential. The line should pass through quickly enough to limit any flood potential.

A weak cold front will bring a slight cool down into Wednesday before another warming trend quickly starts. Another storm system and cold front is set to arrive during the end of the week. Once again one or two strong to severe t-storms will be possible. Once again rain amounts will be spread out over the span of a few days and moving through fairly quickly to limit any flood threat.

Next weekend looks fairly decent. We could see some wrap around moisture lead to an isolated shower or two Saturday, but most stay dry. Temperatures will be very comfortable very close to mid March normal.

Yet another cold front and storm system looks to impact the area by the middle of next week. Still a lot of uncertainty related to this particular system. But with it being 9-10 days out we have plenty of time to monitor weather model trends.
