Scattered afternoon t-showers for Tuesday, then drier for rest of week
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - After a mostly-dry Memorial Day weekend, we bring scattered t-showers into the picture for Tuesday. After that, however, it’s a drier pattern through the rest of the workweek and into the weekend.
Partly cloudy with a patch or two of light fog for Tuesday morning’s start but it stays dry with daybreak temperatures around 70° to the low 70°s. We go to a sun/cloud mix by the late morning with isolated thundershowers developing during the early afternoon. Highs on Tuesday will climb to around 90° for metro Baton Rouge with scattered t-showers developing from the mid-afternoon into the early evening. Set rain chances on Tuesday at 30% to 40% with no real concern for severe storms.
By contrast, rain chances will run at 20% or less from Wednesday through the following weekend. Morning starts will run from the upper 60°s to low 70°s with afternoon highs running from around 90° to the low 90°s. Some neighborhoods could be flirting with highs in the mid 90°s by next Monday.
In the tropics, we continue to watch Hurricane Agatha in the eastern Pacific. Remnants of Agatha are expected to move towards the southwestern Gulf, with the NHC giving those remnants a 40% chance of re-development towards the end of the workweek. Regardless, anything that might come from the remnants of Agatha are not going to be a concern for Louisiana.
