Continuous News and Weather for Acadiana

Dry Monday before better rain chances Tuesday & Wednesday

The nice weather from this weekend will continue into Monday with slightly below average temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Most of us stay dry again on Monday but with it being summer we can not rule out one or two stray pop-up showers during the afternoon.

Low rain chances next couple days

For the most part Acadiana dodged the rain and with a light northerly breeze temperatures were slightly below average today in the upper 80s.

With some dry air wrapping into Acadiana this evening lows should drop down into the lower 70s by Sunday morning.

Haze/heat continues but better chance of storms on the way

Hazy, hot and humid conditions will continue for Acadiana Friday, but instability aloft and deeper tropical moisture moving in from the north and east should translate to scattered storms by the late afternoon into the early evening hours.

Fewer storms, more heat and haze

A disturbance and weakness in the upper atmosphere will gradually yield to a more stable and hazy pattern for Acadiana through the mid-week period.

A few isolated showers/storms Tuesday afternoon

Most of the showers have now pushed out into the Gulf of Mexico but thanks to the rain temperatures have been on the comfortable side setting up a pleasant evening.

However with the ground still quite damp from today’s rain there is a good possibility for patchy to dense fog Tuesday morning.

Scattered showers/storms Monday morning

The pop-up showers and storms that bubbled up this afternoon are fading as we move into the evening leading to another warm and muggy night.

Then during the overnight hours into Monday morning we will be watching a line of showers and storms diving south into Acadiana.

Stray shower possible Sunday; Better rain chances Monday

The summer heat and humidity continues Sunday with highs in the low 90s and feel like temperatures once again topping out between 103-107.

The only difference on Sunday is we will have a slight chance for a couple stray showers during the afternoon/evening, mainly north of the interstate.

High heat and humidity continues Saturday

Even with a fair amount of high clouds today preventing heat indices from getting as high as Thursday morning lows did not dip below 80 thus we had our 2nd straight heat advisory for Acadiana which continues until 7PM.

The clouds look to stay with us through the overnight hours which should keep lows near 80 again thus I think we will have another heat advisory on Saturday.

Rain chances tone down will heat amps up

An upper level disturbance will slowly traverse Louisiana through Tuesday allowing for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms into Tuesday, but drier, hotter and more humid conditions await Acadiana later this week.

Hot and sticky Father’s Day

The summerlike heat and humidity is back, and it looks like it will be sticking with us until about late September.

Pleasant weather continues through Thursday

Thank you June cool front as it felt amazing today.

If you were stuck at work all day make sure you get outside this evening to enjoy the pleasant temperatures and humidity.

Drier air brings lower humidity to Acadiana this week

Monday night into Tuesday morning a rare, June “cool” front will push drier and slightly cooler air into Acadiana leading to a few pleasant days this week.

Behind the front on Tuesday highs will be below average in the mid 80s and with dew points in the lower 60s making it will feel really comfortable to be outside.

Spring cool front to bring drier air to Acadiana this week

The heat is going to hang on for one more day to start the work week with highs Monday afternoon topping out in the low to mid 90s.

But during the afternoon a cool front will be working through Acadiana which could spark off a couple isolated showers but rain chances only look to be about 20% or less.

Great pool weather on Sunday

The heat continues Sunday with highs in the mid 90s but thanks to a northwesterly flow again the humidity won’t be too bad making it a perfect day to enjoy the pool.

Krotz Springs tornado classified as an EF1

Among many of the flood and wind damage reports in Acadiana following Wednesday night’s into Thursday morning’s severe weather event, the National Weather Service performed a preliminary survey of the damage in Krotz Springs and determined it to be an EF1 tornado with 107 mph winds.

More scattered storms Friday…but they will be moving

After flooding rains of 4-12″ or more and severe storms across a good part of Acadiana Wednesday night into Thursday morning resulting in the flooding across the region, there has been a bit of a break Thursday afternoon before another couple of rounds of storms will be on the way late tonight into Friday.

Tropical heavy rain and flood threat for Acadiana

Although the disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico will likely not develop, its deep tropical moisture is on track to impact Acadiana Wednesday into Thursday in the form of heavy, flooding rains.

Coastal Flood Advisory issued along South Louisiana

With the approach of a tropical disturbance the next few days winds will increase out of the south pushing Gulf water onshore.

Thus, a Coastal Flood Advisory has been issued for Calcaseiu, Cameron, Iberia, St. Mary and Vermilion parishes from 1 AM Wednesday until 1 PM on Friday.

Active weather involving tropical disturbance mid-late week

While Acadiana will get one more exceedingly hot and humid day Tuesday, a couple of weather systems look to interact in the region bringing the threat of locally heavy rains, elevated winds and tides along the Louisiana Coast Thursday.
