BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Rain chances will be likely each day resulting in a slight break from the oppressive heat. A surge of Gulf moisture, a stalled boundary, and a slowly developing Gulf low pressure system will all contribute to decent rain chances for the upcoming work week. No one day looks to be a total wash out, but expect some rain for your location each day this week. Atmospheric moisture levels will be high enough to prompt heavy rain threats which could result in localized flash flooding.

Highs will go from the upper 90°s we felt all of last week to the low 90°s for much of this week. The additional clouds and passing showers will help cool things down by late afternoon. Morning starts will remain warm and humid. The morning hours will be mainly dry with a majority of the rain occurring during the afternoon and evening hours.

The weather will trend slightly drier for the 4th of July holiday weekend. We won’t be able to completely end rain chances, but activity will be more scattered in nature.

With less rain comes higher temperatures. Highs will return to the mid 90°s by 4th of July. Make sure to take some heat related precautions if you have extended outdoor plans for the holiday weekend.

A tropical wave in the Central Atlantic continues to slowly develop. It appears likely a tropical cyclone will develop as it moves into and through the Caribbean. It’s still way to early to tell where this system will ultimately end up, but as of now long range models continue to target areas in Central America as opposed to the U.S. Another area of interest will be the Western Gulf of Mexico in the next few days. A Gulf low is slowly trying to develop and has a low chance of becoming a tropical cyclone before it moves into Texas by the middle/end of the week.
