Short Term Forecast: It is another clear and cold start on this Thursday with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s. Some patchy frost will be possible. Be sure to dress warmly as you head out the door!
The quiet and cool weather continues today across Southeast Louisiana. There is an area of high pressure located to the north of the state and that is still bringing us the cool northerly winds. Some high clouds will move overhead today, so it will be mostly sunny with high temperatures in the lower to mid 60s.
Some of the clouds will stay over the city tonight and it will be chilly. However, it is not going to be as cold with lows near 40.
Friday will be another nice and quiet day with mostly sunny skies. It will be a tad warmer with highs in the upper 60s. Friday Night is expected to be mostly clear and chilly with lows in the lower 40s.
Weekend Forecast: More pleasant weather is on tap this weekend, but it is going to get a little warmer. High pressure will be located to the northeast of Louisiana and that will bring in easterly winds over Baton Rouge. At the same time a disturbance, or short wave, will move across the Deep South. This disturbance will not have any moisture to work with, so we will only have partly cloudy skies as it moves through. High temperatures will be around 70 and lows will be in the lower to mid 40s each day.
Tropical Outlook: All areas of the tropics are staying quiet and tropical cyclone formation is not expected through Friday.
Take that jacket with you and have a nice day! -Dave
