BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Clouds look to be on the increase as we move into the work/ school week. Monday expect a sun/cloud mix but the area remains dry. Temperatures will remain warm Monday with highs in the mid, possibly upper 80°s. Morning starts through the week will be warm and humid near 70°. So certainly no need for a jacket early.

Highs will approach 90° Tuesday before reaching the low 90°s Wednesday and Thursday. A cold front approaches the area on Thursday which might squeeze out an isolated PM shower.

The cold front will move through the area sometime Friday. Long-range models are currently suggesting Friday morning could see sct’d to numerous showers and t-storms. A Slight Risk for severe weather remains to our northwest for Friday morning. So uncertainty remains as to how strong storms will get on the southern portion of the cold front. Flooding won’t be much of a concern as the ground will have a chance to dry before Friday’s rain.
