After several rounds of soaking tropical rains & localized flooding, a more summer-like pattern is expected for the rest of the holiday weekend for Acadiana.
There will still be plenty of atmospheric moisture lingering from Saturday's tropical disturbance to allow for scattered showers and a few storms, especially as daytime heating kicks in.
Rain chances will be closer to the 40% range Sunday & Monday and should settle into the 20-30% range barring any tropical surprises for much of next week.
The tropics area expected to stay active with a wave in the far Eastern Tropical Atlantic showing some promise, while closer to home, an area of disturbed weather is likely heading for the Bay of Campeche with some potential for development Monday. (See previous KATC story)
High temperatures will approach the 90 degree mark Sunday & Monday and should be firmly planted in the lower 90s for the rest of the week.
