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.

A surge of tropical moisture will swing over Acadiana Tuesday helping to spark off some scattered showers and storms during the afternoon and evening.

This model might be under producing the amount of showers and storms for Tuesday afternoon

 

Another round of scattered showers/storms will be possible Wednesday afternoon as elevated moisture levels remain over south Louisiana.

Due to the high moisture levels any showers or storms that do develop Tuesday or Wednesday could produce heavy downpours with lots of thunder and lightning, small hail and gusty winds.

Fingers crossed the showers/storms will end in time Wednesday evening for all the firework display happening throughout Acadiana.

High pressure will then slide over the region and shut down rain chances for the 4th of July meaning any outdoor holiday plans on Thursday should be dry so remember the sunscreen and water as it will be hot and humid with highs in the mid 90s and feel like temperatures about 103-107°.

High pressure looks to linger in the western Gulf through the weekend meaning the hot and humid conditions will be sticking around with highs in the low to mid 90s each day and heat indices will be near 105-108 and rain chances will be very low at just 10-20% for a couple stray showers.
