A well advertised round of rainfall is pushing across Acadiana Thursday morning, making for a pretty soggy commute to work. While the morning showers will certainly be blanketing and last for a little, the later half of the day should stay fairly rain free. Once we get to about lunch time Thursday showers will start to ease up a little with the clouds more or less locked in place through the day.

The quick moving nature of the showers should help ease any major flooding concerns as it won’t allow water to start piling up. That being said areas along and north of I-10 are likely looking at somewhere around a half inch to an inch of rain. There may be a few spots along the coast that ended up with slightly higher totals as the that’s where we’ll see the heaviest rain. Only problems that may arise is some localized, minor flooding for the areas that typically don’t drain all that well.

An estimated projection of rain totals.

The rest of the forecast is fairly quiet, there will be a gradual shift in the winds Thursday starting in the south and becoming north westerly by the evening. Clouds will hang around through the second part of the day and even into Friday morning, however, by Friday afternoon the sun will be back out. This then paves the way for what will be a sunny, warm weekend.
