Another day, another record
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Today was the fourth consecutive day with a record high in the Baton Rouge area, as we tied the record of 84 degrees set back in 1996.
More unseasonably warm weather is on the way for much of this work week, until the next significant cold front. Expect a mostly cloudy to partly sunny day Monday with breezy winds gusting up to 30 mph, and warm highs in the mid-80s.
A few isolated showers can’t be ruled out. Tuesday and Wednesday both look dry with highs staying in the 80s.
The big cold front gets to town Thursday night into Friday morning, giving us our best rain chance of the week, as well as an elevated threat for severe storms.
The good news is that we clear that storm system out well before the following weekend when it will be drier but much cooler.
