Chance of storms Wednesday, especially north

Posted at 4:23 PM, May 19, 2020

Some scattered storms are possible through the day on Wednesday, especially for northern Acadiana, but most of the region should remain on the drier side.

An upper-level low spinning just off to the north and east of the region may help to ignite some scattered storms in extreme northern portions of Acadiana through Tuesday evening, but otherwise, most of us will stay on the quieter side with clouds increasing later into the night. Lows will drop into the upper 60s to lower 70s.

We are likely going to see more in the way of cloud cover through Wednesday as a weak frontal boundary will be draped across the area. This may help to supply a slightly better rain chance as well through the day. We'll keep rain chances at 30% (mainly for northeastern Acadiana) with highs in the low to mid 80s.

The quieter pattern will resume through Thursday before rain chances increase again for Friday and through the weekend. A wetter, more summer-like pattern is looking to shape up for early next week as a surge of moisture may be streaming in from the Gulf. We will monitor how this pattern evolves in the next couple of days.

In the tropics: Arthur is now a post-tropical system and will continue to track off into the open Atlantic before potentially bringing some impacts to Bermuda by Thursday. Otherwise, the tropics are quiet for now. Stay with the KATC storm team for the very latest.
