Scattered showers and storms to continue through Sunday and for the better part of the work week.
It's the Memorial Day weekend and you may have been able to notice by just stepping outside! It was a hot and humid Saturday across Acadiana with highs in the mid to upper 90s while dew points sat in the lower 70s. The Louisiana summer heat and humidity was certainly back! We did see some storms develop through the course of the afternoon, but mainly in northern Acadiana.
Showers and storms should begin tapering off early Saturday evening. It will be another warm and humid night with lows only dropping into the low to mid 70s under partly cloudy skies. We will stay mainly dry through Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Sunday will start off mainly quiet with a sun and cloud mix before scattered showers and storms start firing up by the afternoon. Not looking at a washout, but be prepared to potentially dodge a few afternoon storms. The activity should begin to die down Sunday evening and through the overnight time frame before higher rain chances return for the work week.
We are looking at a tropical monsoonal-type flow setting up for the better part of this upcoming work week as southerly flow will transport deep Gulf moisture into the region. This will result in elevated rain chances through the week with localized heavy rainfall totals possible. We will continue to monitor this situation closely in the days ahead.
In the tropics: Although the tropics remain quiet, Florida will have its eye on the deep tropical moisture in the eastern Gulf of Mexico that will be bringing them heavy rainfall in the coming days as shown in the Euro above. Continue to stay with the KATC storm team for everything regarding the tropics.
