We will have a hot and more humid afternoon across the Baton Rouge area as the eastern edge of a ridge of high pressure moves closer to Louisiana. At the same time, another area of high pressure in the Gulf of Mexico will move to the east, and this will start to pump in Gulf Moisture over Louisiana. This will give us partly cloudy skies with spotty showers and storms today. However, it will not be enough rain to cancel any Labor Day plans you might have. High temperatures will be in the lower to mid 90s.
Any rain that forms will dissipate by 9 PM and then we will be left with some lingering clouds overnight. It will stay warm and muggy with lows in the mid 70s.
