Friday morning video forecast
TODAY & TONIGHT
Expect a mostly sunny and warm afternoon today. High temperatures will max out close to, if not at 80 degrees. Overnight, temperatures will dip down into the mid & upper 50s - not nearly as chilly as this morning!
The forecast continues to show a warming trend through the weekend. High temperatures will warm into the mid 80s by Sunday - great 'summer-like' weather to end out the weekend. A stray shower or two is possible Sunday afternoon, but nothing that will ruin your outdoor plans.
A cold front will bring our next rain chance on Monday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely, but severe weather does not look like a big concern at this time. As far as rainfall totals go, most could pick up around inch of rainfall, but isolated higher amounts will be possible especially south and east of Baton Rouge.
