Showers and storms move in for the weekend

Posted: Updated:

It's been a quiet weather week in Acadiana with one daily forecast blending into the next as our weather begins to settle into a more predictable summer pattern, but as is often the case in meteorology that is all about to change. 

Friday is going to be another quiet forecast with very little to worry about other then an isolated shower or thunderstorm possible in the late afternoon, early evening. 

The change in the forecast will begin to arrive over the weekend with showers and thunderstorms becoming slightly more widespread especially in the afternoon and evening. 

If you have chores or anything you need to take care of this weekend the best opening will be early on Saturday before the showers and storms begin settling in for the day. 

Showers and storms will become more widespread through the day on Sunday which will likely be a very soggy day with little breaks in the rainfall at times, with the occasional heavy down pour possible. 

It will remain soggy into the first half of the work week with the heaviest shower activity and strongest thunderstorms arriving on Tuesday as the front finally clears the area. 

In total we are looking at roughly 4-6" of rain over that four day stretch with a few isolated areas seeing totals approach the 7-8" marker, however, since the rain is spread out over a four day period flooding shouldn't be a major issue. 

As for severe weather an isolated storm or two may end up meeting severe criteria on Saturday, but many of the necessary ingredients won't be there so we won't have a widespread event.
