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.

Few showers/storms into early weekend, then it gets really hot

Acadiana can expect a return of partly sunny skies Friday, but there will still be the risk of scattered mainly afternoon/early evening showers and storms. Rain chances will decrease this weekend, at the expense of building high pressure and subsequently increasing mid-summer heat.

Hot Memorial Weekend Forecast

Memorial Day Weekend usually marks the unofficial start of summer, and this weekend the weather in Acadiana will be in full summer mode as high pressure dominates across the entire Gulf Coast.

Summer reality/pattern kicks in

The weather pattern for Acadiana screams “summer” as we head closer, and into the unofficial start to summer, the Memorial Day Weekend.

Heat gradually increases into the weekend

After a windy, warm and humid day across Acadiana Tuesday, expect a gradual decrease in wind and increase in temperatures later this week and into the weekend.

Scattered storms likely Sunday morning

Late tonight into Sunday morning the tail end of the line of storms will try to work across Acadiana producing scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Timing for these storms will start about 4 am for our northwestern parishes, reach Lafayette between 7-8 am before clearing St. Mary parish about noon.
