BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Our next cold front will slowly approach the area on Monday. Watch for areas of patchy fog in the morning. Afternoon heat will spark off scattered showers and t-storms.


As the front moves closer late Monday afternoon, showers and t-storms will increase in coverage and intensity. We might see one or two strong storms capable of producing strong gusty winds. As we lose the daytime heat Monday evening, showers and t-storms will slowly dissipate. The cold front actually won’t move through the area until late morning Tuesday. A few lingering showers will remain possible Tuesday morning into the afternoon.

The cold front won’t bring a big change in temperature, but the following few days will feel nice with cooler than normal temps and lower humidity. The nice weather won’t last long as a warming trend begins by Thursday afternoon. Highs will be back into the mid 80°s by Friday.

A mid-level disturbance will approach the area next weekend. Right now, rain chances are 20% on Saturday and 40% on Sunday. As the weather pattern becomes clearer, we will likely be increasing rain chances for one if not both days. Bottom line is that if you have outdoor plans next weekend, prepare for the possibility of rain. Also, prepare for heat. Afternoon highs both days could sneak into the upper 80°s to possibly low 90°s. It stays hot and humid right into the first week of May.
