?? Some mammatus clouds over #BatonRouge on Tuesday afternoon, just ahead of the 5 o'clock hour squall line. How? Cooler, denser sinking air out of the storm clouds caused these "pouch-like" features! #LaWX #MsWX @NWSNewOrleans— Josh Eachus (@DrJoshWX) May 4, 2021

Up Next: Wednesday morning will have a few leftover showers and storms mainly for areas south and east of Baton Rouge. Then the clearing will begin. Some drier air will move in and Wednesday afternoon will be mostly sunny with high temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s. The drier air mass and light northerly winds will really pay dividends on Wednesday night as many low temperatures find their way into the upper 50s to begin Thursday. Sunshine is expected to carry into another afternoon in the low to mid 80s with repeat conditions on Friday and Saturday. From the back half of the weekend into early next week, humidity will gradually build back into the region with lows returning to the upper 60s and enough moisture to spark some afternoon showers.
