BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - We get a fairly quiet weather day Monday before we go back to tracking showers and t-storms. Winds will stay breezy through much of Monday. A passed cold front will add a definite chill to the air.

Make sure to have jackets handy as wind chills will make Monday morning feel more like the upper 20°s to low 30°s. Temperatures will warm to near 60° under sunny skies.

Our next storm system and cold front advances into the area on Tuesday. Sct’d showers and t-storms will begin to develop by Tuesday afternoon. One or two of these storms could be strong to severe with damaging winds and isolated tornadoes the main concerns. A line of t-storms is forecast to develop ahead of the approaching cold front. That will arrive by late evening.

Embedded within this line could be one or two strong to severe t-storms. The main concern within the line will be damaging winds. A Slight Risk for flooding (2 out of 4) and severe (2 out of 5) weather have been issued for the local area. This does not guarantee severe impacts or flooding in the local area but does highlight a heightened threat. Once again this could be a nighttime threat Tuesday. Make sure you have a way of being alerted in case a severe weather alert is issued for your area. Flood concerns are likely to be localized and nuisance types of low-lying, poorly drained areas.

Temperatures will take a slight dip for the rest of the week. Morning lows and afternoon highs will be below normal from Wednesday through Saturday. A warming trend begins for the tail end of the weekend when our next rainmaker approaches. A series of disturbances look to make the first half of next week rather soggy.
