Staying hot, dry through midweek
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.
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.
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.
Rain totals over the 3-day spell are likely to run between 0.2″ and 1.0″ across the WAFB region.
At this point, it looks like high-pressure regains control of our weather for next week with a dry forecast and return of highs in the 90°s for May 16-20.
