We will have a pretty nice afternoon as a cold front is stalled along the Louisiana Coast. You can expect to see a mix of sun and clouds with a few showers possible late in the day. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s.
The weather will go downhill tonight. A disturbance/wave, or area of low pressure aloft, will form over Texas and move along the stalled cold front. This will help to set off scattered showers and some thunderstorms overnight into Saturday Morning. Some heavy rain will be possible, but mainly along the Coastal Parishes. A few inches of rain is possible there. Here in Baton Rouge we will just have scattered showers with some heavy downpours. Low temperatures will be in the upper 50s.
