Hey, south Louisiana weather. Dampen spirits much?

After two straight rainy weekends that fouled up outdoor plans, it would be great to get a break this first full November weekend. Probably not going to happen.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a 40 percent to 60 percent chance of rain Friday, kicking off a weekend where the chance of showers will remain at 60 percent through Sunday:

Among the weather casualties in October:

  • The rain-soaked Greater Baton Rouge State Fair was forced by keep the gates closed for more than half of the fair’s 11-day run;
  • The Louisiana Book Festival at the State Capitol, State Museum, State Library and other downtown Baton Rouge locations sought the cover of buildings and tents as it weathered a “dark and stormy” day;
  • The final day of the Voodoo Music = Arts Experience was canceled due to “dangerous weather conditions,” including a flash flood warning in the metro New Orleans area. Rainfall on Saturday failed to spook music fans, who made the best of the circumstances;
  • The Baton Rouge Halloween Parade moved up its starting time to Saturday morning because of weather concerns.
