Summers in Louisiana are typically a slow affair, the heat and humidity seem to slow everything down and the forecast is no different.

Instead of the fast moving fronts bringing instant change the weather pattern stays stagnant, and even when there is a change it plays out over several days.

This weekend we will see one of those slow pattern changes with a front that is going to meander in from the north before stalling just along the coast, bringing us days of rain.

Until then, however, it is another round of the same with temperatures pushing into the low 90s with the heat index in the triple digits .

There's enough dust in the atmosphere to keep rain chances out of the forecast for Thursday, but a slow moving front will change that by Friday.

Friday evening a round of showers and storms will push through Acadiana kicking off rounds of on again, off again rain that will last through the weekend and into next week.

The stalled front keeps the door open for rain and while it won't be wall to wall rainfall it is going to be a wet stretch of days with plenty of clouds and even a few strong thunderstorms.

Major flooding won't be an issue but fast, arriving localized flooding may be an issue through the middle of next week, although they won't be long lasting events.
