Early Tuesday: A group or streak of thunderstorms will approach from the northwest after dawn. The components of severe weather aren’t quite as loud as previous events and there are some signs that they won’t all align at the same time – but we’ve seen more with a few in the past. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) forecast puts the area at 2/5 of minor risk.

The closer you are to southwestern Mississippi, the better chance you have of dealing with impact weather, and the closer you are to the coast of Louisiana, the less chance of dealing with impact weather.

Expect rain and thunderstorms to reach areas northwest of Baton Rouge around 7 a.m., the metro area may reach around 9 a.m. and weakening of scattered activity could make it to the coast by 11 a.m. The storms are expected to collapse as they move south. Areas south of I-10 will see much less storm activity with the main line. With these storms, gusty winds are the main threat in terms of severe weather with hail and isolated tornadoes possible. The line is expected to slow down as it reaches the local area, which could cause a period of heavy rain. Most locations will receive an inch or so of rain, but one or two spots can contain up to three inches. If and where these quantities fall, problems of street flooding and poor drainage may develop.

remind: You have a way to receive warnings. Be sure to avoid driving during a severe thunderstorm or flash flood warning. 2une In to WBRZ from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. for the latest forecast.

The second half of Tuesday will be quieter. Long rains will give way to restoring sunshine and high temperatures in the low 80s.

next one: Wednesday will be firewood. Temperatures start around 70 degrees with partly sunny skies. In the afternoon temperatures will rise in the mid-80s. The cold front will move through the afternoon and evening hours. While this system may struggle to produce any rain or thunderstorms, any system that is developed will have a lot of energy to become strong, especially north and east of Baton Rouge. Away from that front, the rest of the weekday and weekend will be clear with temperatures around 5-10 degrees below average. In fact, you’ll want a jacket in the morning!
