If you have plans on Sunday prepare for another hot and humid day with highs in the lower 90s and feel like temperatures pushing the triple digits under mostly sunny skies.

Now, during the early afternoon don’t be surprised if one or two isolated showers or storms do pops up throughout Acadiana but they won’t last long and should not cause any real issue for outdoor events.

Moving into Monday and Tuesday high pressure will build over the region shutting down the rain chances and turning up the heat as highs will top out around 93-94° with heat indices easily climbing into the triple digits.

Wednesday we could have a weak upper level wave push into the area helping to spark off a few isolated showers or storms during the afternoon.

To end out the work week it will be back to the hot and humid conditions with plenty of sunshine.

Looking ahead to next weekend no real changes meaning more summer like heat with highs in the lower 90s and feeling like 100-103°.

Going into the following week that is when we could gradually start to see rain chances return to the forecast just in time for the 4th of July holiday as some tropical moisture potentially works our way from the east.
