The capital area is saying goodbye to the cool pattern. A transition to a warmer pattern has already begun, and doesn't show many signs of letting up.

Tonight & Tomorrow: The chilliest night of the week has already come and gone. Temperatures will trend in a warmer direction on Tuesday night, bottoming out in the mid-50s. Thermometers will register even warmer values on Wednesday. Look for a high temperature in the middle-80s. More humidity will also creep back into the region. Dew points will inch closer to 60° - not uncomfortably sticky, but a noteworthy uptick. The added warmth and moisture will produce a few fair-weather cumulus clouds during the heat of the day.

During the evening, there will be no weather woes if celebrating the LSU Gymnastics victory along the parade route.

Up Next: Temperatures will continue to climb in the days to follow, with highs eventually returning to the upper-80s. The humidity will make its presence known, especially over the weekend. Morning lows will also join the party as they rise into the 60s and 70s. A few record highs are also in danger over a period of several days.

Rain chances remain low despite the warm and muggy pattern. Our next best shot at rain appears to arrive on Monday. Even then, rain is not a guarantee as storms should be operating on an isolated basis.
