Baton Rouge, the capital of Louisiana, sits on the banks of the mighty Mississippi river, about an hour’s drive from New Orleans. Its sub-tropical climate means that it’s warm or hot for much of the year, with only a couple of months of cool weather and occasional snowy or icy conditions. The most popular time to visit is during the early summer. Temperatures in June and July peak around 92 degrees Fahrenheit so be sure to pack your sunscreen and hat. Spring is the next busiest tourist season, and the city is particularly lovely with spring blossoms and daily high temperatures of 74 – 86 degrees Fahrenheit. If you visit during the fall, you’ll find that fewer tourists means you can find good deals on rooms and flights to Baton Rouge. From December – February, with high temperatures averaging between 62 – 66 degrees Fahrenheit and lows around the freezing mark, it can be quite chilly. Baton Rouge even experiences the occasional snow or sleet storm, and icy conditions that can make roads treacherous. Visitors from the north may scoff at these temperatures, but as a city unaccustomed to this kind of weather, with a little snow on the ground Baton Rouge grinds to a standstill. February usually sees a spike in tourism around Mardi Gras, when the city is bursting with parades and parties.
