According to the calendar we're getting closer and closer to the start of summer, but judging off the weather pattern we have it would be safe to say summer is here.
The only thing missing is Lafayette's first 90 degree day which has stayed very elusive so far this year.
Last year our first 90 degree day came on May 24th, the latest 90 degree day we'd seen since 1981, and this year as of Wednesday it still hasn't happened.
That will likely change by the end of the week as mostly sunny skies will pave the way for temperatures to make it that high.
Isolated showers will be the main weather event over the next few days and even those will be more elusive then they were earlier this week.
High pressure continues to dominate the forecast and doesn't look to relinquish control until early next week when a trough comes swinging through.
The tropics remain quiet although a disturbed area in the Bay of Campeche looks to stick around for the next several days.
Development doesn't look likely in the short term, and even if development does occur the system will end up drifting to the eastern half of the Gulf of Mexico.
