Localized impacts expected from next storm system
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Temperatures will approach if not reach record highs this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon. Highs are forecast to be in the mid to possibly upper 80°s both days.
A cold front will put a slight halt to our warming trend late Friday night into Saturday morning. The threat for active weather is not looking very pronounced locally. Near the state line we could see one or two strong possibly severe storms.
Primary concern will be damaging wind followed by an iso’d tornado. Most everyone else will get through this next storm system with no impacts. Rain amounts could range around 1″ near the state line with everyone else averaging less than 0.50″.
The front bypasses the area Saturday morning leading to a few sct’d rain showers. The rest of Saturday will see clearing skies and improving weather conditions. The front will then retreat north as a warm front late Saturday.
Off and on showers and t-storms will be possible Sunday as we return to the warm/unstable side of these frontal systems.
Locally heavy rainfall will be possible with localized pockets of 1-2″ rainfall totals. Sct’d showers and t-storms will linger Monday and early Tuesday before another cold front helps dry us out and cool us down for the middle of next week.
