BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Still dealing with warmer-than-normal days that will continue through the weekend and into next week. Scattered rains return to the forecast for Thursday through Sunday, but after that, it’s back to a hot-and-dry pattern for next week.

We could see a few patches of fog on Wednesday morning but it should not be a problem for the morning commute. Daybreak temperatures on Wednesday will be in the mid to upper 60°s for much of the viewing area. Mostly sunny skies for Wednesday afternoon will allow afternoon temperatures to climb back in the low 90°s but feeling like the mid 90°s.

It’s back to the low 90°s for Thursday, too, but Thursday comes with scattered afternoon and evening showers and a few thunderstorms. Set Thursday rain chances at 30% to 40%. In fact, Thursday kicks off a run of days with scattered rains: a 50% rain chance for Friday, 50% to 60% on Saturday, and 30% to 40% for Sunday.

Rain and clouds on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are likely to keep daytime highs in the upper 80°s rather than the 90°s, providing a little break from the summer-like temperatures but still above normal for this time of year. Four-day rain totals are likely to average around 1.0″ across the area. After that, however, high-pressure rigging returns, putting the clamps on rain for next week while prompting a return of highs in the 90°s for next Monday through Friday (May 16-20).
