Today-Tomorrow: Today will start off on a sunny note with more sunshine in the morning. Cloud cover looks to increase in the afternoon with a few spotty showers and thunderstorms around. A disturbance in the Gulf will slowly be moving inland to our East over the next 2 days. This will bring heavier rainfall to our area late tonight into tomorrow. Expect a greater coverage of rain overnight and tomorrow with heavier downpours possible. There will also be a threat of flooding in Baton Rouge with the higher flood threat the farther east you live. Highs today should reach the low-mid 90s due to a later arrival for most of the rain whereas tomorrow will be limited to the upper-80s in the afternoon. Overnight tonight temperatures should get into the mid-70s.
Friday-Sunday: Rain chances will become spottier as we enter the weekend with a little more sunshine. This will allow high temperatures to return to the low-90s. Still grab your umbrellas!
Monday-Tuesday: Next week starts with highs near 90 with scattered thunderstorms each day.
Tracking the Tropics: The disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico is now unlikely to develop into an organized tropical system due to its proximity to the coast. It will track inland over the next few days bringing heavy rain to the Gulf Coast.
