Cold snap before warm-up and returning rain this weekend
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Early morning storms have exited leaving behind bright sunshine, breezy winds, and cooler temperatures. Wind will be the big weather story for the rest of the day. Wind gusts will peak in the mid to upper 20 mph range. Make sure to anchor any of those Christmas decorations.
The cooler temperatures will last only briefly. Expect a cold start Thursday morning with lows dipping into the mid to upper 30°s. All spots will remain above freezing. Winds should stay strong enough to prevent any frost. Highs Thursday only reach the low 60°s. A warming trend begins Friday and is really felt by the weekend. It feels much like Christmas for Baton Rouge’s Festival of Lights Friday night.
Over the weekend, a weak cold front will try to work its way through the local area. There won’t be a ton of moisture for this front to work with so rain chances will remain slim. The best chance for rain will come Saturday afternoon with scattered showers and maybe a t-storm. Rain chances remain in the forecast for much of next week. But, those rain chances will be very slight (10-30%) daily. Another cold front will bring a slight cool during the middle of next week.
