    August 22, 2013 6:46 AM

    It is going to be a hot and humid afternoon across Southeast Louisiana just like it should be for late-August. A tropical wave is located over the Eastern Gulf of Mexico and that will be moving toward the Northern Gulf later today and tomorrow. We will be partly cloudy with... more »
  • Partly cloudy and hot with spotty showers today

    August 19, 2013 6:41 AM

    The stationary front will remain along the Louisiana Coast today, and that will be the focus for showers and storms in the Coastal Parishes. A few showers may make it into Baton Rouge this afternoon, but we will be mainly dry with partly cloudy skies. High temperatures will be around... more »
  • Partly cloudy and hot today

    August 16, 2013 7:32 AM

    The front will continue to sit along the coast today. Some drier air will move in from the north, and that will prevent us from getting much rain, if any. We will be partly cloudy and hot with highs in the lower 90s. Partly cloudy skies will stick around... more »
  • Partly cloudy and a bit less humid with a few showers today

    August 15, 2013 6:33 AM

    The cold front will stall along the Louisiana Coast this afternoon. It will be close enough to help set off a few showers and storms in Baton Rouge with partly cloudy skies. Some drier air will start to move into town today and that will help to make it feel... more »
  • Scattered showers and storms return to Baton Rouge today

    August 9, 2013 6:52 AM

    We will see an increase in the amount of storms we receive today, and that will give us a break from the heat! This is thanks to an upper-level low and a tropical wave that are moving across the Gulf of Mexico. These systems will increase the amount of moisture... more »
  • Hot with isolated showers and storms today

    August 5, 2013 6:47 AM

    We will have a better chance of seeing some showers and thunderstorms today! The area of high pressure that was sitting over us all weekend has moved to the west, or over Texas. This will allow for some extra moisture to stream up from the Gulf over us, and that... more »
  • More heat with a slightly better chance for storms today

    August 1, 2013 6:55 AM

    The ridge of high pressure remains centered over Texas today, but we have a cold front drifting south toward Baton Rouge this afternoon. The front will not make it here, but it will be close enough to help set off isolated showers and thunderstorms with partly to mostly cloudy skies.... more »
  • Hot and humid with spotty storms today

    July 31, 2013 6:37 AM

    You can expect another sweltering day across town. A ridge of high pressure sits over the Southeast U.S. and stretches all the west into New Mexico. This is limiting the amount of storms that will pop-up with the heating of the day. We will have a mix of sun and... more »
  • Hot with spotty showers and storms today

    July 25, 2013 6:46 AM

    You can expect another very hot and humid day with only spotty storms this afternoon. Some of the storms started this morning along the Coastal Parishes. This is all thanks to the northwest winds aloft keeping it pretty dry up there. We will be partly cloudy to a mix of... more »
  • More scattered thunderstorms today

    July 22, 2013 7:13 AM

    You can expect another day with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. A trough of low pressure is located north of Louisiana and when you combine that with a very unstable air mass over Baton Rouge that will lead to more storms today with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Some... more »
  • More heat with scattered thunderstorms today

    July 18, 2013 7:21 AM

    We will have a more active afternoon with showers and thunderstorms. This is thanks to a shortwave, or disturbance, moving across part of the Deep South and a TUTT Low (tropical upper tropospheric trough), or upper-level tropical low, in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico. Combine those features with daytime heating... more »
