Beta moves out; Drier and cooler air set to move in

Posted at 4:45 PM, Sep 23, 2020

After a soggy few days across the region, drier air is finally returning to the forecast meaning rain chances are on the way down.

The remnants of Beta made its way across central Louisiana through the day on Wednesday resulting in a few tropical downpours and localized flash flooding across Acadiana.

Some spotty showers will be possible this evening before all of the activity moves out of the area after midnight.

The good news is that this system is finally pushing out of the area and guess what is being left behind in its wake?... well drier and cooler air!

Northerly flow will return to the region after midnight tonight and into Thursday morning. Lows will settle back into the upper 60s under cloudy skies.

A mostly cloudy day will be in store for Thursday, but rain chances will sit no higher than 20%

With more clouds and a northerly flow in place, high temperatures will be kept in check and only top out in the upper 70s.

The clouds clear and sunshine returns in time for Friday and the weekend as temperatures rebound to the mid and upper 80s for afternoon highs.

Rain chances will stay pretty minimal through the next several days... certainly great news after the wet pattern we've been stuck in these last few days.

The next weather story we will be tracking is the arrival of a stronger cool front by early and mid-next week.

That will look to send our overnight low temperatures into the 50s with high temperatures during the day in the 70s.

It certainly appears fall-like temperatures are on the way!

In the tropics: For the first time in a while, we are not tracking any new systems out in the Atlantic and activity will remain limited at least through the next five days.

We still have several weeks left to go in the hurricane season, so we will continue to closely monitor any new developments in the tropics in the weeks ahead.
