...Freeze Warning in effect until 9 AM...
Short Term Forecast: It is a very cold and frost morning across the Baton Rogue area. We have clear skies, calm winds and temperatures in the lower 30s. This will allow us to have a light freeze along and north of the I-10/12 Corridor. The NWS has issued a Freeze Warning in effect until 9 AM. You will want to dress warmly this morning!!
We will become warmer this afternoon as an area of high pressure sits over the Southeast U.S. Expect sunny skies with high temperatures in the lower 60s.
It is going to still be cold tonight, but we will stay above freezing with clear skies. Low temperatures will dip into the upper 30s.
Friday will still be a transition day from the sunny skies to what will be a dreary weekend. Clouds will be on the increase and it will become warmer. Look for partly cloudy skies with highs in the upper 60s. Friday Night will be mostly cloudy with a few sprinkles. Lows will be in the lower 50s.
Weekend Forecast: It is shaping up to be a pretty dreary and soggy weekend. A cold front will move down to Louisiana and stall north of Baton Rouge on Saturday. This will give us mostly cloudy skies with spotty showers during the day. It will be warm and more humid with highs in the lower 70s. Saturday Night will be cloudy with isolated showers. Lows will be in the lower 60s.
The cold front will get a push from a disturbance on Sunday and it will finally move into Baton Rouge. We will have scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. A few storms could become strong at times. It is going to be warm and humid until the front moves through with highs in the mid 70s.
The cold front will make its way down to the Louisiana Coast on Sunday Night/Monday Morning. We will continue to have the rain and storms during the night. Lows will be in the mid 50s.
You better bundle up this morning, and have a great day! -Dave
