Gordon made landfall Tuesday night along the Mississippi coast and while impacts here in Acadiana were non existent, Gordon will be responsible for our next round of rain.

As the system lifts north through Arkansas it’ll pull moisture in from the Gulf of Mexico which will lead to a wet couple of days.

Showers will kick off in the late morning/early afternoon along the coast, before spreading north across the rest of Acadiana.

Patchy morning sunshine will be replaced by an abundance of cloud cover across the region and heavy downpours will move through the majority of the day.

This will usher in a pretty wet stretch of weather through the next couple of days as a steady stream of moisture moves in from the Gulf of Mexico.

Showers will be a little more widespread on Thursday and Friday which will make for a soggy end to the work week, but it should return to more scattered type activity.

The long term forecast into next week keeps a similar look with enough moisture to spark showers through the week, but it’s hard to find a decent forcing mechanism so the showers won’t organize.
