Won't necessarily be raining endlessly, but I'd be prepared to dodge scattered showers and storms for any of your outdoor plans.

With sufficient moisture values in place, periods of heavy rainfall will also be possible.

In fact, the WPC has Acadiana in a slight risk for excessive rainfall Saturday (level 2 out of 4).

While widespread flash flooding is not anticipated, isolated ponding on the roadways and flooding in isolated, flood-prone areas could occur.

Have a great holiday weekend!
