Foggy starts Monday and Tuesday and then severe threat Wednesday
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Monday and Tuesday will be dry and warmer than normal. This is all thanks to increased southerly flow helping to pump in warm moist air off the Gulf of Mexico. Temperatures will be 5-10 degrees above normal through Wednesday. Watch for areas of morning fog Monday and Tuesday mornings.
Our next cold front arrives Wednesday evening. A line of showers and t-storms is forecast to develop ahead of the cold front. A few storms embedded within this line will be capable of being strong to severe. The main threat will be damaging winds, but an isolated tornado or two embedded within the line can’t be ruled out. The good news is that rain amounts will be manageable as this line of storms works through the local area fairly quickly.
Rain comes to an end late Wednesday night and the weather will be very nice to end the work/school week. Temperatures will be comfortable and skies dry Thursday and Friday. A disturbance will be moving across the local area Saturday bringing another decent chance for rain. It is still too early to tell if severe weather will be possible. We also don’t have the exact timing of rain. For now, the forecast shows mainly AM showers and t-storms Saturday. Hopefully, we can get the rain in and out soon enough to salvage a majority of the weekend.
We start the following week dry and slightly cooler than normal. Another storm system will approach for the middle of the week.
