BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Temperatures will be warmer Thursday as a ridge of high pressure continues to build. Highs will top out in the mid 80°s all the way through the upcoming weekend.

Jeff Morrow focuses on what type of weather to expect this weekend.

Humidity levels will slowly increase in the coming days. The ridge will stay close enough to the local area to keep dry weather around through Saturday. Enough moisture will be present to produce a few scattered t-showers Sunday afternoon and early evening. Most will remain dry, so don’t cancel any outdoor plans.

Our next cold front arrives late Monday into Tuesday morning. This cold front will produce a likely chance of rain. Severe weather doesn’t look to be an issue locally with this next system. The front should move through quick enough to limit rainfall amounts. Most will receive around 0.5″ of rain. Don’t expect a big cool down from this front. Mid week temperatures will only take a brief/slight dip before rebounding by the end of the week.

The front will help to usher in drier air. The second half of the 10-day forecast looks to remain dry. Highs are forecast to climb towards 90° by the following weekend.
