The pop-up showers and storms that bubbled up this afternoon are fading as we move into the evening leading to another warm and muggy night.

Then during the overnight hours into Monday morning we will be watching a line of showers and storms diving south into Acadiana.

The leading edge of the storms looks to reach the I-10 corridor between 6-8 am, meaning it could be a wet morning commute.

Here is a look at the latest Predictive Radar:



As this initial line arrives it could produce some damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph, so the Storm Prediction Center has placed all of Acadiana under a marginal risk for the possibility of a couple severe storms.

Scattered showers and storms will linger through the morning til about lunchtime before they start pushing out into the Gulf.

Once the showers clear we should have times of sunshine during the afternoon warming temperatures into the lowers 90s with heat indices topping out near 105.

With this heating a few more showers could pop-up during the late afternoon and evening.

In total rainfall totals will be about a half inch to an inch but some spots could pick up 1-3 inches of rain where the heaviest downpours develop.

Tuesday and Wednesday a large plume of Saharan dust will swing over Acadiana creating a couple hazy, hot and humid days with highs in the low to mid 90s and heat indices near 103-107.

Now this Saharan dust should make for some colorful sunrises and sunsets.

We look to stay hot and dry Thursday and Friday, although a stray shower might be possible during the max heating of the day.

And more of the same for next weekend with hot and humid conditions and the slight chance for an isolated shower in the afternoon.
