BATON ROUGE, La. (NBC33) — A passing cold front gave south Louisiana a soggy start to its Monday. Around 10:00 a.m., Baton Rouge received ~0.18 inches of rain.
By 11:20 a.m., the front continued heading eastward. The Capitol City began its drying trend. Although, the clouds were stubborn to exit.
Around 12:20 p.m., the rain continued heading out of the NBC33 viewing area, into New Orleans and Mississippi. The Baton Rouge airport measured ~0.35 inches of rain by noon.
The forecast ahead, brings today's rain-maker to parts of Alabama, Georgia and Florida tonight, while Louisiana starts its clearing trend through the evening.
Temperatures will drop into the upper-30s/lower-40s on Tuesday morning. Then, sunshine and high-temperatures in the mid-60s will arrive Tuesday afternoon--making it a beautiful one to enjoy!
Heading into Wednesday, another cold front knocks on our doorstep. However, this time, it will move through dry. South Louisiana may see a few extra clouds by Wednesday, but no rain is forecast through the rest of the week!
Temperatures will drop into the mid to lower-30s a few nights this week, especially by Thursday night, so keep at least 3 out of the 4 P's in mind: People, Pets and Plants. The fourth P, Pipes, will not be a concern this time.
