Heat remains key this week
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Heat remains the key weather story this week although spotty-to-isolated showers will be possible each of the next three days.
Isolated afternoon t-showers are expected for Tuesday with spotty showers possible for Wednesday and Thursday. But it’s mid to upper 90°s for the next three days with 100° on the Baton Rouge forecast board by week’s end.
We enjoyed a welcomed break from the humidity today but that doesn’t last as low-level Gulf moisture will rebound over the next couple of days. Expect dry but muggy morning starts in the mid to upper 70°s for the rest of this week and into the weekend.
Highs are expected to be in the mid to upper 90°s for Tuesday and Wednesday, then up to near or at 100° for Thursday, Friday, and the weekend.
The First Alert forecast Includes a 20% to 30% rain chance for Tuesday but then backs those percentages down to about 10% for Wednesday and Thursday.
Given the combination of high heat and Gulf humidity, the Storm Team can’t rule out a spotty shower or two for Friday and Saturday but the vast majority of the WAFB area will remain dry for those two days.
Nudge rain chances to 20% on a very hot Sunday. The outlook into next week currently suggests slightly-lower afternoon temperatures, running in the mid 90°s, along with better rain chances each afternoon.
