BATON ROUGE, La. (NBC33) — Music, food and fun! The forecast for the unofficial start to summer is looking great in south Louisiana.
Although our temperatures will be warm, a cool front drifting southward on Friday will bring less-humid air to the area, making for a more comfortable-feel outside. Afternoon highs are forecast to rise into the upper-80s each afternoon under mostly sunny skies, while mornings start in the mid to upper-60s.
If you plan on attending any outdoor events, like the Jambalaya cook-off or Bayou Country Superfest, you can put away the rain gear, but you may want to bring out your sunscreen. Also, make sure to stay well hydrated and take frequent breaks from the hot highs.
