Short Term Forecast: You better bundle up as you head out the door this morning around Baton Rouge! We have clear skies with our temperatures in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
The area of high pressure remains over the Deep South this afternoon and that will make for another beautiful day. It will be sunny but still cool thanks to cold air moving in from the northeast. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s.
You can expect another chilly night across Southeast Louisiana with clear skies. Low temperatures will be in the lower 40s.
Friday will also be a gorgeous day, but it is going to be much warmer. This is due to the area of high pressure moving to the east of Louisiana and shifting the winds from the north to the southeast. We will have mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid 70s. Friday Night will be not as chilly with clear skies and low temperatures in the mid 50s.
Weekend Forecast: The southerly winds will continue all weekend and that means we will stay warm. It will also be a little more humid and you will be able to tell thanks to the partly cloudy skies that are in the forecast each day. Highs will be in the upper 70s to around 80 each afternoon. Low temperatures will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. A few showers will be possible late on Sunday and into Sunday Night as a strong cold front moves toward Baton Rouge.
Tropical Outlook: Everything remains quiet in the tropics and tropical cyclone formation is not expected through Friday.
Bundle up today and have a great one! -Dave
