Krewe of Artemis, LSU Baseball May Be Dodging Showers

(WBRZ News 2 Meteorologist Josh Eachus) Thursday Morning could be one of if not the last taste of wintry temperatures this season. On average, the last freeze occurs around Feb. 24. At this point, the last freeze registered in Baton Rouge was on January 8. Previously, the earliest, last freeze of the season came on January 11 in 1952. But that mark could be ousted here in 2017 as above average temperatures are expected right into Early March.  


Today and Tonight: Bright sunshine is in store for Thursday with seasonable temperatures in the mid 60s. The overnight hours will continue to bring clear skies with low temperatures backing off into the mid 40s—likely several degrees warmer than Thursday Morning.

Up Next: Changes come quick on Friday with increasing clouds and milder temperatures. A fast moving disturbance is expected to produce showers in Southeastern Louisiana from the afternoon into the overnight hours. This means that the LSU Baseball opener and Krewe of Artemis parade cannot be guaranteed dry, but neither event should washout either. Beyond that, outdoor plans will be in fine shape this weekend with partly sunny skies and high temperatures making a run at 80 degrees. Fans at Alex Box Stadium along with Krewe of Mystique and Krewe of Mutts revelers will likely be in shorts! Rain and thunderstorms return to the forecast by Tuesday.
