Keep the umbrella handy the next few days

Posted: Updated:

No changes expected to the forecast meaning you could probably do my job for me by now.

Sunday will begin just like the past several with a few coastal showers otherwise the rest of Acadiana will see a mix of sun and clouds creating hot and humid conditions with highs in the upper 80s to near 90s and feel like temperatures pushing the triple digits.

Then during the afternoon, mainly after 2PM, scattered showers and storms will fire up throughout Acadiana producing rounds of heavy downpours with some loud thunder and lightning and gusty winds up to 30mph. 

This wet forecast will linger into the first half of the new work week as we continue to have quite a bit of tropical moisture in the Gulf of Mexico leading to a 40-50% chance for afternoon scattered showers and storms Monday and Tuesday.

By Wednesday some slightly drier air aloft will move over Acadiana dropping rain chances down to the typical summertime norm of 30%.

This drier air aloft looks to stick around for the rest of the work week and into next weekend meaning most areas will finally begin to dry out except for one or two pop-up showers during the 5 day stretch.

With the lower rain chances to end out the week combined with the additional sunshine each afternoon temperatures will begin to climb a couple degrees into the low to mid 90s with feel like temperatures easily soaring past the century mark. 

Thus, for those working outside in the heat remember to drink plenty of water and to wear sunscreen, sunglasses and hats to protect yourself.
