A tropical wave in the southern Gulf pushed tropical moisture into Acadiana Sunday sparking off a round of passing showers and storms in the afternoon.

These showers/storms will begin to die out this evening once the sun goes down between 7-9 pm.

Labor Day will start off quiet with lots of sunshine, but like Sunday, there will be the chance (30%) for a few hit or miss showers and storms in the afternoon.

Tuesday the tropical wave will weaken and an upper level ridge will build in from the west shutting down our rain chances for the rest of the week.

This high will also bring us some hot temperatures for the start of September with highs Tuesday through Friday in the mid, to possibility upper, 90s.

Although it will be hot this week slightly drier air will be sliding down from the north, so that should help to keep the humidity in check.

By the end of next weekend and into the following week a trough looks to dive towards the southeast and with winds switching out of the southeast that could help to produce a few pop-up showers and storms during the afternoon and help to lower temperatures down into the lower 90s.

In the tropics Dorian has now made landfall over the northern islands in the Bahamas as a catastrophic category 5 hurricane with 185 mph winds.

Besides Dorian the National Hurricane center is monitoring 3 other disturbances.

The wave in the Gulf, which send us the rain on Sunday, has a 30% chance of development but likely will run out of time as it will move over the east coast of Mexico Tuesday afternoon.

Another wave by Bermuda as a low chance (20%) of development and will likely not become anything.

Lastly, there is a tropical wave moving away from the west coast of Africa that has a high chance(70%) of development in the coming days but should turn to the north and stay way out in the open Atlantic.
