The warming trend continues today thanks to the area of high pressure moving up the East Coast. This has taken the bitter cold air with it, and southeasterly winds will come back over Baton Rouge today. These winds will transport in some warmer Gulf air along with some extra moisture. This will give us a mix of sun and clouds with high temperatures in the lower 60s.
It will not be as cold tonight thanks to those southeasterly winds. We will have partly to mostly cloudy skies with some patchy fog. Low temperatures will be in the upper 40s.
