BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A warming trend will continue into the start of the new work week. Temperatures will continue to warm more so for morning lows than daytime highs. Rain chances will start to return to the forecast Monday with a slight chance (30%). The slight rain chance continues on Tuesday (40%) with scattered afternoon showers and t-storms.

A storm system will push a slow-moving cold front into the area by mid-week. This front will trigger widespread showers and t-storms Wednesday mainly during the afternoon and evening.

One or two storms could possibly become strong to severe. A Slight Risk (2 out of 5) has been placed across the WAFB viewing area for Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday morning. A lot of the severe weather threat details will have to be worked out in the coming days as the threat doesn’t look guaranteed. We may be looking more at a nuisance-type flood event instead of a severe weather event this time around. Showers and t-storms will linger into early Thursday morning as the front slowly bypasses.

The front will stall in the northern Gulf and then retreat north as a warm front Friday. This will bring a few t-showers back into the forecast as we move into the Easter Weekend. The big weather story for Easter Sunday looks to be warmth. Highs look to climb into the mid 80°s Easter Sunday after a humid start in the mid 60°s. Only a 10% rain chance is currently in the forecast, but that could change as we do expect another cold front to arrive sometime Monday.
