Already tracking next rain threat on Thursday
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The Baton Rouge area will get a break from heavy rain through Wednesday. The weather will stay dreary though with lots of clouds and at times passing light showers. Also, be ready for areas of fog each morning. Temperatures will stay mild with damp conditions.
Thursday brings back widespread rain with a threat of heavy rain and possibly even a few strong to severe storms. A storm system and cold front will move across the local area through the day Thursday. The most active weather appears likely during the afternoon/evening hours. Damaging wind will be the main severe weather risk. Around 1″ of rain is forecast on average with locally higher amounts of 2-3″ possible. The storm system exits the area into Friday morning with a slight cool down to end the week. We’ll be keeping track of area rivers into the weekend as once again levels will be above normal as this rain event occurs.
Cool weather doesn’t last long as a rapid warm-up takes place next week. Rain chances should hold off until the middle of next week when another storm system and cold front pushes through.
