BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A mid-level disturbance will be pushing through the local area Tuesday. A line and cluster of t-storms will rush through southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi early Tuesday morning.

The timing is not ideal as it could impact the morning commute. Make sure to give yourself a few extra minutes out the door. One or two embedded storms will have the potential of becoming strong to severe. The main concern is damaging wind, but we can’t totally rule out an isolated tornado. Rain amounts will be manageable as most pick up between 0.5-1.0″.

Rain will clear out going into mid week. We also will see a slight cool down. Another storm system and cold front is set to arrive Friday morning. Showers and t-storms will be likely with one or two strong to severe storms possible once again. Friday’s storm system will be a quick mover once again limiting any potential flood threat.

The cold front Friday will leave behind a wonderful weekend forecast. Temperatures will be comfortable and skies will be mainly clear. Unsettled weather returns by the middle of the following week.

Looking ahead, the news is good for the Wearin’ of the Green parade in Baton Rouge on Saturday. It will be a little cool in the morning as temperatures climb through the 50s, but those temps should reach the 60s by late morning. And most importantly, no rainfall is expected.
