Balmy again Tuesday, Front arrives Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

After another foggy start for Acadiana, look for a partly sunny and balmy Tuesday afternoon with temperatures once again pushing the mid-80s.

A cool front will push toward the area Tuesday night into Wednesday bringing plenty of clouds and the chance of scattered showers.

A secondary upper disturbance behind the front will bring a good chance of rain to the area Wednesday night ending early Thursday.

While the models do not show big rains for the area, they are likely underplaying the precipitation potential with rain accumulations possibly in the 1 inch range for most, but some spots could receive a couple of inches.

Rainfall rates should be in the 1/4" per hour range for several hours Wednesday night, so at this point we are not expecting any flooding conditions.

There could be however, be some rumbles of thunder into Wednesday night.

Showers should end from the northwest to southeast Thursday morning with skies clearing during the afternoon.

Rain chances will be in the 10% range Tuesday, 20-30% Tuesday night, near 30% Wednesday, increasing to 70% or better, Wednesday night.

Temperatures will cool into the mid-upper 60s behind the front Wednesday and will gradually drop into the chilly (and wet) mid-upper 50s Wednesday night.

The coolest air will arrive Thursday with highs in the mid-60s followed by lows dropping into the upper 40s for a couple of nights thereafter.

Sunny and pleasant weather is expected Friday into Saturday with temperatures moderating this weekend.

A few showers may return to the area by Sunday into early next week, but at this point there are no definitive weather-makers in the forecast beyond this Thursday morning.

Finally, in the "informational and no threat to land" category...the 19th tropical depression of the season formed in the open Atlantic Monday.

The system should become Tropical Storm (or sub-tropical storm) Rina Tuesday...which is the name that replaced 2005's Rita on the list.

This system will pose no threat to land.
