The streak of warm, humid days with afternoon showers continues Thursday

Posted: Updated:

The summer-like weather pattern looks like it will now last right on through the end of the work week.

Thursday will start out with some patchy fog/low clouds before times of sunshine heats up Acadiana into the mid 80s leading to a few isolated showers with a couple rumbles of thunder during the afternoon. 

A weak upper level ridge will try to finally slide over the region Friday dropping rain chance down to just 20% during the afternoon while helping to warm Acadiana into the mid to even upper 80s.

Saturday we are watching a cold front heading our way bringing a decent chance for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.

Right now the severe potential for any storm in Acadiana is very marginal as there is not a whole lot of energy for the system to work with but we can't completely rule out some gusty winds or small hail.

Once the front clears the area cooler and windy conditions will move into Louisiana.

Afternoon highs on Sunday will struggle to reach the lower 70s with a stiff breezy out of the NNW at 10-20mph and gusts to 25mph making it feel like the 60s for most of the day.

It will be a cool start on Monday with lows near 50 but with the winds dying down and lots of sunshine temperatures will rise closer to seasonal norms in the upper 70s.

Tuesday & Wednesday we are back to highs in the mid 80s and dew points climbing back into the lower 60s fueling a few afternoon puffy clouds.

Towards the end of next week just in time for Festival International we will be back to a summer-like pattern with warm and humid conditions leading to the possibility for isolated pop-up showers during the afternoon but the good news is no day right now looks to be a wash out.
