A few scattered storms along the coast early this morning. The air mass is very warm and humid this morning with temperatures in the low to mid 70s across the region. A few 80s along the coast. Most of the rains are drifting northeastward, but dissipating before they reach the I-10 corridor.
Another hot and humid day on tap as temperatures will climb into the lower 90s and the heat index will approach 100. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop as we head into the afternoon with chances running around 30%.
A cold front is located across the Midwest and will drift southward. In fact it might reach the Acadiana area which is very unusual for July. Although we probably won't feel the full effects of the front with the cooler and drier air, we might get a little taste into Wednesday and Thursday. Slightly lower humidity might cool our night time low temperatures a few degrees, and make it more comfortable.
But, as the front moves in for Tuesday, a better chance for rain and storms. Possibly some heavy downpours. The threat for severe storms can't be ruled out either.
