Decent rain chance today, but dry by Thursday
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Off and on rain showers will continue today. At times rain will be moderate in intensity resulting in an additional quarter of an inch for some. Rain amounts will be manageable for everyone with no flooding concerns.
The Gulf low responsible for the area rains will begin to exit the region Wednesday. The local area will remain on the backside circulation which still could result in a lingering light shower or two. Any rain Wednesday will be negligible.
Wrap around moisture from the slow exiting system will make for some dreary days to close out the work/school week. Expect little in the way of sunshine through Friday. That will keep daytime temperatures below normal through Thursday. Only a slight warming trend takes place Friday before a weak cold front arrives Saturday morning. This front won’t produce any rain and will only provide a very slight cool down. Temperatures Sunday morning will dip into the mid 40°s though.
Our next rain producing cold front looks to arrive early next week. Rain chances will start to increase Monday with the bulk of the action taking place Tuesday. A storm or two appears possible as the front passes Tuesday, but severe weather doesn’t look likely at this time.
