BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Much quieter weather can be expected over the next several days in the wake of a cold front that moved through early Thursday.

Skies stay clear overnight with temperatures slipping down to near 60° for the Red Stick on Saturday morning. We stay mainly clear through Saturday morning and into the afternoon and the humidity stays low as well with highs on Saturday in the mid to upper 80°s across the WAFB area.

After a morning start in the low 60°s under clear skies, Sunday becomes mostly sunny for the afternoon and a bit warmer as we climb up to near 90°. By Monday, the humidity starts to increase with a morning start in the mid to upper 60°s and partly cloudy skies for the afternoon.

Highs on Monday will be in the upper 80°s to around 90° and we can’t rule out an afternoon shower or two but the vast majority of the area stays dry. More typical summer-like humidity returns for the rest of the workweek with morning starts in the upper 60°s to low 70°s from Tuesday into the following weekend along with afternoon highs in the upper 80°s to low 90°s. The Storm Team forecast carries low-end rain chances from Tuesday through Friday but the extended outlook calls for dry days for the following weekend (June 4-5).
