Sunshine returns Sunday, heavy rain potential next week
Tonight and Tomorrow:
Tonight, we'll keep some clouds around but clearing will begin overnight. Lows will be in the mid 40s. Sunday will be the pick of the weekend. Expect a mostly sunny afternoon with highs in the low 70s.
Clouds will begin to increase again on Monday, ahead of our next storm system. A series of disturbances will roll through the region, allowing for rounds of heavy rainfall Tuesday through Thursday. With the latest data coming in, 3-6 inches of rainfall are likely, with locally higher amounts possible - especially east of Baton Rouge. Wednesday night, into Thursday, a low pressure center will swing across the northern half of the state. With this kind of set up, strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible, but those details will need to be ironed out the next few days.
