BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A dreary weather pattern will remain in place for most of this week. If you see the sunshine, be sure to enjoy it, because there won’t be much of it in the coming days. A warm, moist weather pattern is in place with zonal flow aloft and southerly flow at the surface. This is pumping in moisture off the Gulf of Mexico keeping clouds overhead and warmer than normal temperatures in the forecast.

Jeff Morrow and the WAFB First Alert weather team provide an update on What We're Tracking Next on Monday, Dec. 5.

Areas of fog will be possible each morning. We don’t think the fog will be dense on a widespread level but remember to use fog safety when traveling late at night or during the early morning hours.

A few showers will be possible today as a warm front continues to lift north. Rain coverage will be 20%. A stray sprinkle will be possible Tuesday through Thursday, but with no measurable rain expected we will keep the forecast rain chance less than 10% during those days. A weak cold front will move into the area Friday bringing a slight chance for showers back to the forecast. The front may push through resulting in a slight cool-down by the weekend.

Better rain chances will come early next week as our next strong cold front arrives. Long-range models do not agree on the timing of this next storm system. We also have to work on how strong the system might be as well. For now, expect one or two days to have decent rain chances early next week with a possibility for strong storms and periods of heavy rain.
