Give yourself extra time to travel through dense fog this morning.

THE FORECAST

Today & Tonight: There is a dense fog advisory out until 10 am for all of south Louisiana. Give yourself a little extra time to get around through dense fog patches this morning. Fog will start to lift out around 9 and there will likely be some significant clearing by 10 o clock. After the fog clears, the rest of the day will be mostly sunny with temperatures in the mid-70s. Tonight, temperatures will be in the mid-50s and the fog likely to return and linger into tomorrow morning.

Up Next: Fog is likely to be an issue again tomorrow morning until about 10 a.m. Temperatures will be in the mid-50s and afternoon highs in the upper 70s with mostly sunny skies. Enjoy the sunshine now! This weekend is looking cloudy and rainy. There is a series of boundaries expected to move through the area between Sunday and Wednesday next week. Each one will bring a unique chance for rain. Just a few showers will be around during the day on Saturday and Sunday, neither day will be a total washout and there will be a few peaks of sun. A stronger front is expected to move in late Sunday into early Monday bringing scattered showers. Monday afternoon will be clearing. Another boundary is set to bring isolated shower activity on Tuesday with another spike to scattered showers coming on Wednesday. Predicted rainfall totals are 1 inch or less for the next 7 days.

Wednesday PM Forecast: changing rain chances Saturday and beyond https://www.wbrz.com/news/wednesday-pm-forecast-changing-rain-chances-saturday-and-beyond/ https://www.wbrz.com/news/wednesday-pm-forecast-changing-rain-chances-saturday-and-beyond/ Forecast Discussion Wed, 1 Dec 2021 4:53:47 PM Chief Meteorologist Dr. Josh Eachus Wednesday PM Forecast: changing rain chances Saturday and beyond

It will be a mild, if not warm finish to the workweek. Rain chances will steadily ramp up as we move through the weekend and into next week.

A *DENSE FOG ADVISORY* is in effect from midnight tonight to 10 am Thursday for the entire WBRZ Weather Forecast Area, except St. Mary Parish. Visibility of one-quarter mile or less could create difficult driving conditions. Slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.

Next 24 Hours: The overnight hours will be mostly clear and calm with low temperatures in the low 50s. Patchy, possibly dense, fog can be expected around dawn. Thursday will be a little warmer yet with high temperatures reaching the mid 70s in response to mostly sunny skies.

Up Next: Morning fog may continue to be a factor on Friday. The last day of the workweek will have high temperatures about 10 degrees above average, in the upper 70s. A few clouds may begin to appear as well. A couple of weak, upper level disturbances will ride through the area bringing a few chances for showers over the weekend. Since these disturbances are indeed weak, a key takeaway is that neither day looks like a washout. Many locations will not even get rain. The pattern looks to get a bit more unsettled early next week. A frontal system will bring a punch of showers and thunderstorms early Monday morning, but no significantly cooler air as the front fails to make a full pass into the Gulf of Mexico. While there could be a brief break on Tuesday, another chance for precipitation is pegged for Wednesday.  CLICK HERE for your detailed 7-Day Forecast.

The Tropics: For the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic, tropical development is not expected over the next five days. The official hurricane season has ended. It was the third most active on record in terms of named storms with 21. For recap of the top storms of the season, CLICK HERE.

The Explanation: A broad surface high pressure system will remain over the Southeast U.S. through the end of the week. In the upper levels of the atmosphere, flow will remain out of the northwest. This combination promotes a dry and gradually warming pattern as onshore flow slowly returns. With a subtle return of surface moisture indicated by rising dew points, night with clear skies and light winds will support fog development over the next few mornings. Afternoons will climb into the upper 70s with ample sunshine Thursday and Friday afternoons. By the weekend, the atmosphere will moisten up just a bit as the flow moves out of the southwest ahead of a fast-moving and weak wave of low pressure. In fact, several weak impulses could traverse the area with some passing showers. Since these are weak and fast-moving, timing them will be difficult until we get closer. For now, we have a few showers in the forecast for both days this weekend. Without a strong frontal passage, continued southwest winds aloft will prime the atmosphere with enough moisture for a more appreciable shot at precipitation early next week. A more substantial upper level trough of low pressure will move southeast towards into the region Sunday night into Monday with an associated cold front. With this, a band of showers and thunderstorms is anticipated and most locations should pick up measurable amounts. That front may stall or quickly drift back north as a warm front on Tuesday, so above average temperatures will continue.

Tuesday PM Forecast: morning fog possible, next rain chance this weekend https://www.wbrz.com/news/tuesday-pm-forecast-morning-fog-possible-next-rain-chance-this-weekend/ https://www.wbrz.com/news/tuesday-pm-forecast-morning-fog-possible-next-rain-chance-this-weekend/ Forecast Discussion Tue, 30 Nov 2021 4:57:15 PM Chief Meteorologist Dr. Josh Eachus Tuesday PM Forecast: morning fog possible, next rain chance this weekend

Cool and foggy mornings will give way to warm and dry afternoons. Temperatures will be well above average by the end of the week.

Next 24 Hours: Overnight, light winds and mostly clear skies will allow low temperatures to drop off into the low 40s. A bit of fog may form near dawn. Wednesday will continue the gradual warming trend with high temperatures reaching the mid 70s in response to mostly sunny skies.

Up Next: Morning fog may continue to be a factor on Thursday and Friday. The last two days of the workweek will have high temperatures about 10 degrees above average, in the upper 70s, during the afternoon. A few clouds may begin to appear as well. By Friday night, a couple of weak, upper level disturbances will ride through the area bringing a few chances for showers over the weekend. These will be a little easier to time out as we get closer. While it is unclear exactly when rain chances will be highest at this time, a key takeaway is that neither day looks like a washout. Uncertainty increase with both the temperature and precipitation forecast early next week. CLICK HERE for your detailed 7-Day Forecast.

The Tropics: For the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic, tropical development is not expected over the next five days. This is the final day of hurricane season. It was the third most active on record in terms of named storms with 21. For recap of the top storms of the season, CLICK HERE.

The Explanation: A broad surface high pressure system will remain over the Southeast U.S. through the middle of the week. In the upper levels of the atmosphere, flow will remain out of the northwest. This combination promotes a dry and gradually warming pattern as onshore flow slowly returns. In the near term, a few more cool to chilly nights are ahead with clear skies and light winds. These conditions could support fog development each morning this week. Afternoons will climb through the 70s with ample sunshine. The onshore flow should be firmly in place by Thursday and Friday and expect lows in the 50s and highs in the upper 70s. Skies will stay mostly sunny due to the atmosphere remaining rather dry. By the weekend, the atmosphere will moisten up just a bit as the flow moves out of the southwest ahead of a fast-moving and weak wave of low pressure. In fact, several weak impulses could traverse the area with some passing showers. Since these are weak and fast-moving, timing them will be difficult until we get closer. For now, we have a few showers in the forecast for both days this weekend. Without a strong frontal passage, continued southwest winds aloft will prime the atmosphere with enough moisture for a more appreciable shot at precipitation early next week. Another front will move into the region and potentially stall with several disturbances riding over top of it to produce rain.

Monday PM Forecast: a little warmer each day this week https://www.wbrz.com/news/monday-pm-forecast-a-little-warmer-each-day-this-week/ https://www.wbrz.com/news/monday-pm-forecast-a-little-warmer-each-day-this-week/ Forecast Discussion Mon, 29 Nov 2021 5:10:15 PM Chief Meteorologist Dr. Josh Eachus Monday PM Forecast: a little warmer each day this week

The trend through the week is warming temperatures. Dry conditions will persist.

Next 24 Hours: Overnight, skies will be clear as winds stay light. Low temperatures will respond with a dip into the low 40s and upper 30s for areas north and east of Baton Rouge. Tuesday will follow up with ample sunshine and high temperatures reaching for the 70s. Winds will be light and southeasterly.      

Up Next: After a chilly start, more sunshine will send high temperatures easily beyond 70 degrees on Wednesday. Thursday may have perhaps one more low in the 40s for the week followed by high temperatures about 10 degrees above average, in the upper 70s, during the afternoon. A few clouds may begin to appear as well. Ditto for Friday with dry and mild conditions. By Friday night, a couple of weak, upper level disturbances will ride through the area bringing a few chances for showers over the weekend. These will be a little easier to time out as we get closer. While it is unclear exactly when rain chances will be highest at this time, a key takeaway is that neither day looks like a washout. CLICK HERE for your detailed 7-Day Forecast.

The Tropics: For the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic, tropical development is not expected over the next five days. For the latest tropical forecasts, advisories and information, visit the WBRZ Hurricane Center as we finish out the 183 Days of Hurricane Season.

The Explanation: A broad surface high pressure system will remain over the Southeast U.S. through the middle of the week. In the upper levels of the atmosphere, flow will remain out of the northwest. This combination promotes a dry and gradually warming pattern as onshore flow slowly returns. In the near term, a few more cool to chilly nights are ahead with clear skies and light, northeast winds. Afternoons will return to the 70s with ample sunshine. The onshore flow should be firmly in place by Thursday and Friday and expect lows in the 50s and highs in the upper 70s. Skies will stay mostly sunny due to the atmosphere remaining rather dry.

Wednesday PM Forecast: Thanksgiving cold front, showers sneak into weekend forecast https://www.wbrz.com/news/wednesday-pm-forecast-thanksgiving-cold-front-showers-sneak-into-weekend-forecast/ https://www.wbrz.com/news/wednesday-pm-forecast-thanksgiving-cold-front-showers-sneak-into-weekend-forecast/ Forecast Discussion Wed, 24 Nov 2021 5:30:34 PM Chief Meteorologist Dr. Josh Eachus Wednesday PM Forecast: Thanksgiving cold front, showers sneak into weekend forecast

Take care of frying that Thanksgiving turkey early, a cold front will bring showers into the area during the afternoon and evening. Another weak disturbance has come on to our “radar” that could create some rain for part of the weekend.  

Next 24 Hours: Much milder conditions are expected overnight with southeast winds holding low temperatures in the mid 50s. Another cold front will move from northwest to southeast across Louisiana through Thanksgiving. On turkey day, high temperatures will reach into the low 70s around midday as clouds thicken. Some scattered showers associated with the front will pass over the area between noon and midnight. There is no threat for heavy rain or severe weather. Thermometers will tumble once the front passes into Friday morning.   

Up Next: Expect clearing and cooler conditions for the Bayou Classic and holiday shoppers. Despite skies turning mostly sunny, high temperatures will barely reach 60 degrees. Rather chilly conditions are anticipated into Saturday morning with low temperatures dipping into the upper 30s. The Saturday forecast is tricky, for a couple of reasons. First, there is potential for clouds to thicken. The sooner this occurs, the cooler it will be with possibly a second straight afternoon struggling for the 60s. Second, for the LSU Football home finale, we will need to keep an eye on the timing of a weak disturbance. If it moves quickly, a few showers could arrive before the game is over. Those showers will then linger into Sunday and then the first half of next week will be dry. For the day-by-day conditions, highs and lows, CLICK HERE for your detailed 7-Day Forecast.

The Tropics: For the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic, tropical development is not expected over the next five days. For the latest tropical forecasts, advisories and information, visit the WBRZ Hurricane Center as we finish out the 183 Days of Hurricane Season.

The Explanation: A weak upper level trough of low pressure will race across the middle of the country with an attendant cold front on Thursday. This system is expected to arrive in the local area on Thanksgiving with showers along the boundary from afternoon into the evening. Rainfall totals will be light and there is no threat for severe weather. That cold front will be through the area on Friday morning and skies will clear from northwest to southeast. Temperatures will struggle for the low 60s in the afternoon followed by another night in the upper 30s. A weak upper level disturbance will move across the region late Saturday through Sunday and while this will not have a frontal passage, it could spread clouds over the region Saturday and even a batch of light rain Saturday night into Sunday. Should clouds arrive earlier in the day, high temperatures could end up a few degrees lower than currently forecast on Saturday afternoon. Once that disturbance moves east, it will be absorbed by an upper level trough dug in over the eastern third of the country. In addition to the trough, a surface high pressure system will settles over the Southeast maintaining dry conditions and cooler than average temperatures into early next week. .

Tuesday PM Forecast: warming before Thanksgiving cold front https://www.wbrz.com/news/tuesday-pm-forecast-warming-before-thanksgiving-cold-front/ https://www.wbrz.com/news/tuesday-pm-forecast-warming-before-thanksgiving-cold-front/ Forecast Discussion Tue, 23 Nov 2021 5:26:46 PM Chief Meteorologist Dr. Josh Eachus Tuesday PM Forecast: warming before Thanksgiving cold front

A brief period of moderating temperatures is expected into Thanksgiving. A cold front will push in with some late day showers followed by another chill to end the week.

Thanksgiving Travel: If you will be driving within Louisiana or any of the neighboring states on Wednesday, mostly clear conditions are anticipated. National travel will be relatively quiet as well, with only some windy conditions to deal with in the Northeast and snow showers in the Mountain West.

Next 24 Hours: Though not quite as cold as Tuesday morning, tonight will still be chilly. Low temperatures will find the low 40s with clear skies and light winds.  As wind shift to the southeast at 5-10mph, high temperatures will run into the low 70s on Wednesday afternoon. Lots of sunshine will be available but some clouds should be able to develop in the afternoon.

Up Next: Another cold front will move from northwest to southeast across Louisiana through Thanksgiving. On turkey day, high temperatures will reach into the low 70s as clouds increase. Showers could reach northern and western neighborhoods by late afternoon and then reach across the Baton Rouge area into southeast Louisiana through dusk and into the evening. The front and accompanying showers are expected to exit Friday morning leaving clearing and cooler conditions for the Bayou Classic and holiday shoppers. Rather chilly conditions are anticipated into Saturday morning with low temperatures dipping into the upper 30s. One forecast hiccup is the potential for clouds to thicken Saturday, which could make for a very cool Saturday as high temperatures would struggle for the low 60s. Despite the cool air and potential cloud cover, weather should not be an issue for the LSU Football season finale.

The Tropics: For the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic, tropical development is not expected over the next five days. For the latest tropical forecasts, advisories and information, visit the WBRZ Hurricane Center as we finish out the 183 Days of Hurricane Season.

The Explanation: A weak upper level ridge will build over the area on Wednesday. At the surface, winds will take on a southeasterly direction. This combination will lead to warming temperatures and increasing moisture and therefore some clouds may appear in skies by afternoon. Trailing the ridge, a weak upper level trough of low pressure will race across the middle of the country with an attendant cold front. This system is expected to arrive in the local area on Thanksgiving with showers along the boundary from late afternoon into the evening. Rainfall totals will be light and there is no threat for severe weather. That cold front will be through the area on Friday morning and skies will gradually clear from northwest to southeast. Temperatures will struggle for the low 60s in the afternoon followed by another night in the upper 30s. A weak upper level disturbance will move across the region late Friday through Sunday and while this will not have a front or much moisture to tap, it could spread a patch of clouds over the region Saturday into Sunday. Should this occur, high temperatures could end up a few degrees lower than currently forecast on Saturday afternoon. If a shower can form, it would be light and near the coast Saturday night. The eastern third of the country will have a stubborn upper level trough dug in through Monday while a surface high pressure system settles over the Southeast. Dry conditions and cooler than average temperatures will persist into early next week. .

Monday PM Forecast: up and down temperatures through Thanksgiving week https://www.wbrz.com/news/monday-pm-forecast-up-and-down-temperatures-through-thanksgiving-week/ https://www.wbrz.com/news/monday-pm-forecast-up-and-down-temperatures-through-thanksgiving-week/ Forecast Discussion Mon, 22 Nov 2021 5:25:54 PM Chief Meteorologist Dr. Josh Eachus Monday PM Forecast: up and down temperatures through Thanksgiving week

A cold front passed through on Monday morning and will allow for a 24-hour period of chilly temperatures. Some moderation is then expected before another front arrives on Thanksgiving night.  

Next 24 Hours: Clear skies and chilly temperatures are anticipated overnight. Low temperatures will dip into the upper 30s with slightly cooler readings north and east of Baton Rouge. If northeast winds of 5-10mph can slacken a bit, the numbers could go just a few degrees lower but freezing conditions are not expected. Tuesday will be sunny and quiet with high temperatures in the mid 60s.    

Thanksgiving Travel: If you will be driving within Louisiana or any of the neighboring states on Wednesday, mostly clear conditions are anticipated. National travel will be relatively quiet as well, with only some windy conditions to deal with in the Northeast and snow showers in the Mountain West.

Up Next: Wednesday will be mostly sunny and warmer with high temperatures reaching the low 70s as winds shift southeasterly. Another cold front will move from northwest to southeast across Louisiana through Thanksgiving. On turkey day, high temperatures will reach into the low to mid 70s as clouds increase. Showers could reach northern and western neighborhoods before dusk but most areas will stay dry for the daylight hours. The front and accompanying showers are expected to pass through by mid-morning on Friday leaving clearing and cooler conditions for the Bayou Classic and holiday shoppers. Below average temperatures are expected to last through Saturday. A weak disturbance could cause some clouds for part of the weekend, including during the LSU Football season finale, but no rain is expected at this time. For the day-by-day conditions, highs and lows, CLICK HERE for your full 7-Day Forecast.

The Tropics: For the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic, tropical development is not expected over the next five days. For the latest tropical forecasts, advisories and information, visit the WBRZ Hurricane Center as we finish out the 183 Days of Hurricane Season.

The Explanation: With a cold front through the local area, northerly winds will be driving cooler air in through the night. Low temperatures will dip into the upper 30s and perhaps lower if winds can lighten a bit. Locations north and east of the city could reach the mid 30s. An upper level ridge will build over the Southeast U.S. through Tuesday, so after a sunny and cool afternoon, temperatures will be at more seasonable readings on Wednesday. As the ridge pushes east, an upper level trough of low pressure will slide into its place sending an attendant cold front into the region on Thanksgiving. Along the front, some showers may develop from late Thursday through early Friday. As has been the case recently, this looks like another system that will be weakening and producing less rainfall as it moves through our region with no threat for severe weather. Cooler and drier air will bring temperatures back down below the seasonal averages Friday into Saturday as a surface high pressure system builds over the Gulf Coast. A second round of lows in the 30s will be possible to begin the weekend. Saturday and Sunday should be largely dry but the sky cover forecast could be a little tricky with some weak, upper level disturbances moving through and possible stirring up some clouds. Additionally, any clouds could have an effect on temperatures.

Friday will start out rainy and temperatures will max out in the low 60s. That will lead us into a chilly weekend, but mostly clear. Any rainfall is expected to measure in at less than one inch.

The Forecast:

A cold front will arrive overnight, into early Monday morning. This will bring a broken line of showers and a few rumbles of thunder through the area between midnight - 4am. Manageable amounts of rain are expected.

Clouds will linger around through late morning, then clear out through the afternoon. Highs will only be in the mid 60s tomorrow.

Looking Ahead:

Temperatures will drop significantly behind the front with Monday night lows in the 30s. Temperatures will be flirting with a light freeze near and across the Louisiana/Mississippi state line.

If you plan on traveling across the southeast Tuesday and Wednesday, no major weather impacts are expected. Another front will move through late Thanksgiving Day, into Friday morning bringing a chance for showers.
