This evening a cluster of showers and storms is trying to work south into Acadiana.

Here is a live look at the radar:


So far the line of showers and storms have been able to drop down into the northern portions of Acadiana.

The models have been doing a poor job with this system so we will just have to watch it closely to see if it holds together because most models have the area of showers falling a part as it moves farther south.

That said the models do want to show another system that is back over Texas swinging into Acadiana during the overnight hours and reaching Lafayette near daybreak on Monday.

Scattered showers/storms possible Monday morning


As this system slides into the area the Storm Prediction Center has most of Acadiana under a marginal risk that one or two storms could produce damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph and small hail but I think they are just being on the cautious side.

Low end threat for one or two storms to possibility have strong gusty winds tonight into Monday morning


Scattered showers and storms will then be possible on and off throughout Monday but the day will not be a wash out and a fair amount of the day will be dry, hot and humid with highs near 90.

Tuesday looks to be very similar with times of scattered showers and storms possible but rain chances will only be about 40% otherwise it will be partly sunny, hot and humid.

Hit or miss showers and storms possible Tuesday afternoon


Wednesday and Thursday the afternoon showers become more isolated in nature allowing for extra sunshine to push temperatures a couple degrees higher into the low to mid 90s.

Friday through the weekend high pressure looks to build over the northern Gulf making for a very summer like forecast with highs in the mid 90s and heat indices topping out between 103-108.
