Week ends as hot as it started

It’s been a quiet stretch of weather the last several days and that stagnant pattern has no real end in sight so if you’re not a fan of this weather this is not the forecast for you.

There’s very little left to say about the weather that hasn’t been said time and time again (we’ve reached the part of the summer where even the most obscure adjectives have been overused).

Alas the show must go on so here it is for the seemingly billionth time, a hot and humid forecast that includes, you guessed it, a slim chance for some showers in the afternoon.

If you’re looking for a little nuance in the forecast you’ll find it in pinpointing where the moisture will be surging in at the end of the week, higher moisture content will be available along the Atchafalaya Basin.

This puts a slightly higher chance of showers in the eastern half of Acadiana on Friday, but even then rain chances will hover around 40% both Friday and Saturday so nothing close to a washout.

Temperatures will stay hot which one would expect for August and the humidity stays oppressive (again one would expect that for August) so the heat index will hover consistently in the triple digits.

While it can feel like a slog sometimes a quiet forecast in the summer is certainly better then the opposite.
