Beautiful Sunday, and Warm Work Week Ahead

Sunday will be a very nice weather day.  High pressure will remain the dominant weather controller.  The high sits to our east and is pumping warm, moist southerly flow into South Louisiana and Southwest Mississippi.  Skies will start to fill with some cloud cover, but we stay dry.  Highs will top out in the low 70°s across the entire WAFB viewing area.

This means that the weather for the Mystic Krewe of Mutts parade in downtown Baton Rouge later today will be very nice.  Festivities begin at 10 AM at Galvez Plaza.

The parade trots (dogs trot right?) down North Boulevard at 1:30 PM.  Temperatures will be right at or around 70° at that time.

As we roll into the work week we are expecting to see some fog.

The persistent southerly flow will shore up moisture at the surface.  As the air temperature reaches the dewpoint that moisture will condense creating the fog.  It should remain fairly patchy in nature for most spots, but a some areas mainly south of Baton Rouge could see some areas of dense fog.  This fog potential will be around for Tuesday and Wednesday mornings too.

Rain chances will remain fairly slim for most of the work week.  While we won't be able to say things will remain completely dry, we can't rule out a spotty or iso'd shower Monday through Thursday.  But most will stay dry throughout.  Check out those high temperatures though.  We see mid 70°s each afternoon and morning starts will also be substantially warmer in the 50°s and 60°s.
