Moisture started streaming into Acadiana on Sunday and resulted in a good bit of cloud cover that will carry over into the beginning of the work week. The increase in moisture will fire up some showers with embedded thunderstorms through out the day on Monday and Tuesday.
The much needed rainfall could arrive as early as the morning hours of Monday, so it won't be a bad idea to throw an umbrella in the car before going to work or running any chores you may have. Although not quite blanketing the rain will be widely scattered with even more arriving on Tuesday.
Better chances for rain will move in on Tuesday with the occasional rumble of thunder. The extended cloud cover will keep temperatures close to 90 degrees with highs potentially not making it out of the 80s. With all the humidity, however, the air will still be hot and sticky and the only real relief will arrive with the occasional shower.
The potential isn't great for any kind of severe weather, but as we always see some of these storms could produce small hail and frequent lightning.
The rest of the work week is looking standard with the skies clearing, temperatures warming, and showers becoming more isolated.
