Drought conditions took another hit Wednesday with another afternoon of showers and thunderstorms, and the forecast keeps rain chances a little more elevated the next few days. 

If you’ve been outside at all the last few days it doesn’t take long to realize how much moisture is in the atmosphere just by how heavy it feels every time you leave the comfort of the air conditioner. 

All of this moisture has translated into periods of heavy rain and chaotic thunderstorms which will continue to pop up each afternoon through the rest of the work week. 

Temperatures will be appropriately hot until the showers set in which will help us cool down slightly in the afternoon and evening, and this time of year every little bit helps. 

The heaviest rain is still expected to move through late this weekend with deep moisture moving in from the Gulf of Mexico, the strongest showers and storms arriving on Sunday. 

Acadiana could be looking at 2-4" of rain with this system, but depending on where the showers set up doubling those numbers could be possible, unfortunately we won’t know until we get a little closer to the event. 

It’s one of those frustrating weeks when we keep talking about an event seemingly forever that seems to somehow remain days away, but we’ll keep updating you on the weekend as we get closer.
