We will have a warmer and more humid afternoon as an area of high pressure east of Louisiana pumps up southerly winds/moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. This will make it partly cloudy with high temperatures in the mid 80s.
It will stay warm and a little muggy this evening with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will fall into the upper 70s.
The cold front will move into and through Baton Rouge between midnight and 6 AM. We will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some storms could be strong to severe at times. The storms could have damaging winds, hail and a slight chance of a tornado. It will be a warmer night with lows in the mid 60s.
