The upper-level system that produced today’s scattered showers and storms should slide out into the Gulf this evening with the rain ending across most of Acadiana by 7:00 pm.

Today’s rain did provide some beneficial rainfall across the region with many locations receiving about an inch of rain with some spots getting up to 2 inches.

Wednesday it looks to be back to the hot and humid conditions with highs in the lower 90s and heat indices in the upper 90s to near 100 under partly cloudy skies.

However, there is still a slight chance for a couple showers and storms along the Gulf coast, especially during the morning hours.

For the rest of the work week it will be very summer like with more heat and humidity and with nearly zero rain chances.

Looking ahead to the weekend outdoor plans should be okay but we will have about a 10-20% chance for a few hit or miss showers during the afternoon.

Going into the following work week you will want to have the umbrella in the car as we will have a 20-30% chance for isolated pop-up afternoon showers and storms each afternoon, otherwise it will be hot and humid with highs in the low to mid 90s and feel like temperatures pushing the century mark.
