Very warm today with strong to severe storms possible tonight
We start this Tuesday with some very unseasonably warm temperatures in the mid 60s under mostly cloudy skies.
Get ready for a very warm, humid and breeze afternoon across the Baton Rouge area. This is all in response to a strong cold front that will move through tonight. Ahead of this front we have strong southerly winds that will pump in plenty of Gulf Moisture over us. This will keep us mostly cloudy and allow for some isolated showers to pop-up with high temperatures in the upper 70s.
The weather will go downhill tonight just ahead and along the cold front. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop along a pre-frontal trough of low pressure. Some of these could be strong to severe with damaging winds and even a few tornadoes. Then late tonight and early on Wednesday Morning a squall-line of storms will move through Baton Rouge. The storms along this line could be strong to severe with a good threat of damaging winds and a few tornadoes. SPC has us in a Slight Risk for severe weather tonight. It will be warm, humid and breezy with lows in the lower 60s.
