Thanksgiving Day was sunny but started off chilly as the average temperature across the state has been in the low and middle 40s.
Chilly weather is expected to continue across the region through Thanksgiving weekend, according to forecasts. Morning temperatures are in the 20s. A few flurries are possible and patchy clouds linger. But although we start out a bit warmer temperature-wise, a northerly wind between 10 and 15 miles per hour will make it feel more like upper 20s to lower 30s.
MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear skies and cold temperatures will develop, with a low of 42 degrees.
Friday is looking like a nice day with some sunshine and warmer temperatures. We will have a clear sky throughout the day and will warm up a bit more compared to Thursday.
A breezy weekend is ahead. There should be plenty of dry time, especially during the morning. We'll continue this warming trend into your Saturday with highs reaching the mid-60s. Some clouds will hang around early today before clearing out later this afternoon. More sunshine expected for Friday as highs reach the mid to upper 60s.
NEXT WEEK: A milder pattern quickly builds through the early half of next week. These clouds may bring an outside chance for a passing light shower.
It will be a cold start for Black Friday too, with temperatures in the mid 30s at sunrise for the Baton Rouge metro area. High temps get back to the 50s Tuesday.
