Most of the showers from this morning are dissipating across Acadiana and it looks like we should get a break in the rain for a few hours this afternoon.

This evening we could get another round of few scattered showers and storms as an impulses moves into the region ahead of a cold front which is back over the ArkLaTex.

Predictive Radar


Most models show this front making its way out into the Gulf Thursday morning so temperatures behind the front could be a few degrees cooler in the upper 60s to lower 70s but still above normal for this time of year.

Thursday afternoon the front is expected to lift back over Acadiana producing another dose of hit or miss showers and storms.

Futurecast Radar


With the clouds and 60-70% chance for showers on Thursday temperatures should be similar to today in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Hour by Hour Temperatures


Friday the frontal boundary could still be draped over the region causing rain chances to stay up near 50% with highs in the mid 80s.

By Saturday the front should fizzle out but we could have a few more showers and storms during the afternoon as a shortwave moves out of SE Texas.

For Sunday rain chances should come down to 30-40% as we switch weather patterns back to more of a summertime set up with high pressure over the East Coast.

Next week looks to get warm and humid again with lots of sunshine and a southeasterly flow returning across Acadiana.

Highs will top in the upper 80s but with the humidity it will feel more like the low to mid 90s.

And with the high humidity next week a few pop-up showers and storms will be possible each afternoon.
