Short Term Forecast: It is not as cold this morning across the Capital City. We have mostly clear skies with temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
The Spring-like weather has arrived! The area of high pressure is located to the east of Louisiana and that is allowing southerly winds to pump-up the warm/humid air from the Gulf. This will lead to partly cloudy skies this afternoon with high temperatures in the mid 70s.
The mild temperatures will continue tonight with mostly cloudy skies. Patchy dense fog is also anticipated. Low temperatures will only fall to the mid 50s. That is about 15 degrees warmer than we should be this time of year at night!
Friday will continue to be warm and humid with a mix of sun and clouds. A spotty shower will also be possible as a cold front stalls just to the north of Baton Rouge. High temperatures are going to be in the mid 70s. Friday Night will be mostly cloudy with patchy fog and lows in the upper 50s.
Weekend Outlook: That stalled front will sit just north of Baton Rouge on Saturday. This will keep us mostly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower mainly in the morning. High temperatures will fall a few degrees to the upper 60s. Saturday Night will be partly to mostly cloudy with lows near 50.
The stalled front will get re-energized on Sunday as a disturbance moves from west to east from the Rockies to the Great Lakes. This will pull the front back to the north and we will become warmer and more humid with partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the lower 70s and lows in the upper 50s.
Enjoy the Spring-like weather and have a good day! -Dave
