BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A mix of dry air and high pressure will keep the area hot and mainly dry to start the new work/school week. The first half of the work week will be mainly dry with just a 10-20% daily rain chance Monday-Wednesday. Temperatures will soar into the mid 90°s with feels like temperatures well into the triple digits during the heat of the day.

We aren’t talking about Heat Advisory criteria, but our bodies have experienced a unique break from the summer heat over the last several soggy weeks. Make sure to take heat related precautions if you plan to be outside for an extended period of time Monday through Wednesday.

A trough and weak front will be pushing south by the end of the week. This will cause an increase in rain chances back to the likely category Thursday into Friday. Once again, a threat for heavy rain will exist and could result in localized pockets of flash flooding. Rain amounts of 1-3″ will be possible across the local area Thursday through Saturday. Rain chances will come down some but not much as we move into the following week
