BR experiencing good kite flying weather

Updated: 3 hours ago

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Winds will be breezy over the next few days due to a tight pressure gradient from Hurricane Ian to our east and high pressure to our west. Winds will be sustained 10-15 mph with gusts in the low 20 mph range. The gusty winds and dry conditions will lead to a high fire risk this week. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for the rest of Tuesday and could be in place for Wednesday as well You are encouraged not to do any outdoor burning at this time. Kite enthusiasts should have a few opportunities to take to the sky as winds will remain breezy through Thursday. Otherwise, the weather will be picture perfect through the rest of the week.
