Even bigger cool down after Friday’s cold front
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Temperatures will continue to trend cooler today as we deal with a sun/cloud mix. We could even squeeze out a stray sprinkle or two as a weak mid-level disturbance pushes past the local area. Temperatures will rapidly trend warmer Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday afternoon highs will return to the upper 70°s to low 80°s. The warm-up won’t last long as our next cold front arrives St. Patrick’s Day Friday.
The front will be rolling through the area during the morning hours Friday. Showers and t-storms will be likely during this time. Locally heavy rainfall will be possible with most receiving 1-2″ of rain. Locally higher amounts could lead to some minor nuisance-type flooding (streets, ditches, streams, bayous). One or two storms could be strong to severe with damaging wind being the primary concern. The cold front will stop the warming trend dead in its tracks Friday afternoon. As we move into the weekend, temperatures will take a significant drop.
The weekend will be cool with highs only in the upper 50°s. Morning lows could even sneak down into the upper 30°s. Areas near the state line could contend with some patchy frost Sunday and Monday mornings. Sct’d showers and t-storms return as we start the work/school week. We also will experience a steady warming trend through the first half of next week.
