Late Winter chill to last a few days
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - There is a definite chill in the air thanks to an influx of cold air behind a cold front that worked through the area Sunday. Breezy north winds are also helping to add a chill. Afternoon temperatures will remain comfortable.
Early morning temperatures will be chilly with low 40°s Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Make sure the kiddos have a jacket for the morning bus stop. Temperatures will begin to warm Wednesday afternoon with highs near 80° by Thursday.
Our next cold front is set to arrive on St. Patrick’s Day Friday. It looks as though this cold front will deliver not just another cool down but also the potential for locally heavy rainfall and maybe one or two strong possibly severe storms.
Weather model guidance is suggesting a possible line of storms moving through the local area ahead of the cold front during the mid morning into the mid afternoon. Rain amounts will be manageable, but some could receive 1″+. It’s too early to tell for certain severe weather will be any kind of threat, but damaging wind is often times our primary concern anytime we deal with a line of storms.
The cool down into the following weekend will be significant. If you are heading to any area St. Patrick’s Day parades, be sure to dress comfortably as winds stay breezy and highs barely reach the low 60°s. Lows will once again be dipping down into the 40°s as we move into the early part of the work/school week including the first day of Spring next Monday.
