We’re inching closer to the big Festival International, and starting to get a better idea about the forecast for all the festivities.

As is typically the case it looks like there will be one day where the weather won’t be overly cooperative, but the majority of the time we couldn’t ask for better weather.

Tuesday’s weather will start to set the stage for that day of active weather with winds coming in from the south bringing the moisture into the atmosphere.

A few high clouds will be drifting through on Tuesday to go along with the sunshine which will be out through the majority of the day.

Temperatures will work up into the 80s by the afternoon but with a solid sea breeze rolling in it won’t feel to bad outside.

The next round of active weather is slated for Thursday and the Storm Prediction Center has us locked in for a slight chance for severe weather.

We will need to be on the look out for an isolated severe thunderstorm, but for the majority of Acadiana it will predominately be a heavy rain maker.

Early model runs are indicating area wide rain of 1-2″ with localized storms producing 4-6″ of rain which could lead to some localized flooding.

Make sure to stay updated on all the latest forecast updates as the forecast evolves and we get closer to the arrival of the system.
