Posted at 4:01 AM, May 29, 2020

Low pressure, that's been spinning north of the area all week, will finally make a move toward the northeast away from Acadiana. There will still be a bit of an influence, along with a dissipating frontal boundary, that will keep the slightest chance for an afternoon shower or storm today. But those rain chances will drastically drop off this weekend, allowing more sunshine and more heat. Expect highs to reach the upper 80s with heat index values in the low 90s today. Rain chances will hold at 20%.

Overnight, skies will become fair. Lows will drop into the upper 60s inland, with lower 70s along the coast. Skies will remain partly to mostly sunny for Saturday. Highs will reach 89, with a heat index of 94. Rain chance for Saturday will hold at 10%. Saturday night, skies will remain fair with lows near 70 degrees. Sunday we'll expect mostly sunny skies with highs near 90 degrees. Heat index values Sunday should be near 95.

Early next week should remain quiet with sunny skies both Monday and Tuesday, although a slight chance for an afternoon storm will return by Tuesday. Highs will reach the lower 90s. Summer weather for the rest of next week, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the lower 90s, heat index values upper 90s. A chance for an afternoon storm just about each and every day.
