Have the umbrella ready again Wednesday as another round of showers and storms will slide through Acadiana.

These showers and storms will fire up ahead and along a cool front that will be diving down into the region.

RPM model shows cool front heading for Acadiana producing more rain.

Like Tuesday a few of these showers or storms could produce some heavy downpours lasting up to an hour causing minor ponding or flooding on roadways and low lying areas but widespread flooding will not be an issue.

According to the RPM model this front eventually works it way through Acadiana and out into the Gulf Thursday possibility bringing us slightly cold temperatures behind the front as highs might only top out in the lower 80s.

Here is a look at the Futurecast showing the front pushing through Acadiana.

However, the NAM model also has the front working through the region on Thursday but shows some over running showers during the afternoon so rain chances will stay up near 50-60%.

Either way I think we will see a gloomy day with more clouds than sun on Thursday with highs hovering in the mid 80s.

Friday the models show the front sliding to the north back over Acadiana sparking off more scattered showers and storms.

Saturday rain chances might drop to 40-50% under partly sunny skies with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Sunday looks to be the pick day of the weekend as we should have a mix of sun and clouds and just a slight chance for a few pop-up showers and storms but it will be warm and humid with highs back in the upper 80s to near 90.

Next week our weather will return to a typical summertime pattern with warm and humid conditions as highs hover near 90 creating the chance for a few isolated showers and storms each afternoon.

For a look at the daily rain chances this weekend and into next week here is a look at the European model stopping at 4PM each afternoon.
