Warmth to storms
The warmest and most humid day of the week lies ahead with highs in the mid 80s and a continued humid southerly breeze of 10-15mph. Like Tuesday and Wednesday, while some peeks of sun are possible, the trend will be for skies to grow increasingly cloudy through the day. As early as the later afternoon hours, showers and thunderstorms will develop. Only isolated to scattered activity is expected through evening, though any showers and storms could be stronger with hail and gusty winds. Overnight, a cold front will cross the region bringing a better chance for all to find at least a rain shower. In any thunderstorms, some heavy downpours will be possible. Overall, the threat for a stronger storm will increase moving farther north from Baton Rouge.
