Happy Friday, y'all! Another hot one across Acadiana this afternoon as highs top out in the lower 90s.

Not much in the way of storm activity this afternoon as ridging will be moving into the area to help keep us dry today and also into Saturday. Rain chances running at only around 10% mainly for our coastal parishes these next two days.

Father's Day is looking hot with highs in the lower 90s and about a 30% chance for scattered storms in the afternoon, especially for western Acadiana. All in all, it isn't looking too bad for Dad this weekend!

As we head into next week, the upper ridge that will be keeping us dry the next couple of days will start to move eastward out of the area and an upper-level trough will move in place in its wake. This trough, coupled with daytime heating and added moisture, will keep elevated rain chances in the forecast for most of next week.

Drier air should start to move into the region by late next week and into next weekend which will start to bring our rain chances back down. Have a great day, y'all!

In the tropics: All is quiet and should remain that way through the next several days.
