Quiet end to week; rain returns Sunday
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Chilly air remains in place as we close out the work/school week. Locations north of the I-10/12 corridor could see a brief, light freeze overnight into Friday morning.
Take care of people, pets and plants, but this won’t be a pipe issue. Temperatures will trend warmer as we move into the weekend. The weather will remain dry through Saturday.
An area of low pressure will be moving across the area Sunday. This will translate to widespread rain with pockets of heavy rain. Rain will be off and on through a large portion of the day. Majority of the heavy rain potential will occur during the afternoon.
The local area is under a Slight Risk (2 out of 4) for excessive rainfall. While flood concerns are not widespread, localized nuisance type flooding of low lying, poorly drained areas will be possible.
We will also need to keep an eye on area river levels for possible minor flooding along the Comite, Amite, Tickfaw, and Tangipahoa Rivers.
A series of disturbances will keep a slight chance for rain for the first half of the work/school week. A cold front will move through late Wednesday into Thursday.
Temperatures will take another dip for the end of next week keeping the temperature roller coaster rolling.
