Scattered showers and thunderstorms are popping up right now all around Southeast Louisiana. They are coming from the sea breeze, a disturbance north of Louisiana and daytime heating. Some of the storms could be strong with heavy rain, gusty winds and frequent lightning strikes. High temperatures will be in the mid 90s before the storms move into Baton Rouge.
The storms will continue into the evening hours with tempertaures falling from the 90s into the 80s.
Any rain and storms will dissipate overnight. We will then have partly cloudy skies with low temperates in the mid 70s.
Tropical Outlook: Tropical Storm Ernesto will move into the Bay of Campeche this afternoon/evening. It will track to the west around 15 mph and maintain a tropical storm status with winds around 45 mph. A second landfall is expected by Friday Morning over Mexico as a tropical storm.
Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum has all the details on News 2 at Noon right now, but you can watch his latest video forecast for additional information on the storms around Baton Rouge today.
