BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Mother’s Day was the first 90° afternoon for Baton Rouge but the forecast for this week calls for highs of 90° or more to continue through Friday.

Jeff Morrow and the WAFB weather team provide an update on what they're tracking next and to be aware of the increase in hot weather.

Be ready for patches of fog for both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings but both days will be marked by abundant sunshine and the almost-summer-like heat. It stays dry for Wednesday with just isolated showers in the Thursday afternoon forecast.

Jeff Morrow explains what Heat Advisories mean and why they should be taken seriously.

The Storm Team is calling for scattered showers and storms to return to the area for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Although the outlook for the upcoming weekend keeps afternoon temperatures below 90°, upper 80°s for both Saturday and Sunday will still be above-the-norm for mid-May.
