Following a Wednesday morning front, Acadiana can expect a rather pleasant weather pattern (for June) finishing out the week and heading into the weekend.
Dew points have dropped from the very uncomfortable 75-80 degree range over the last couple of days to the 55-60 degree range Wednesday afternoon.
These lower dew points will keep our relative humidity low as long as we continue to see north winds from a ridge of high pressure to our north...which should continue into the weekend.
Look for lows to drop into the mid-60s in most areas of Acadiana by Thursday morning, with readings as low as the lower 60s possible in our northern-most parishes.
Expect wall to wall sunshine, low humidity accompanied by a nice north breeze during the afternoon Thursday with highs topping out closer to the mid 80s....90 degrees is normal for this time of year (while lows typically are near 72.
Temperatures Thursday night should again drop into the mid-60s.
More sunshine and low humidity is in the offing for our Friday with afternoon high temperatures pushing toward the upper 80s.
Mostly sunny skies and tolerable humidity will continue this weekend, but daytime highs will likely moderate closer to 90.
Rain chances will be relatively non-existent through this weekend, possibly pushing near 10% for Sunday afternoon.
The pattern into next week is looking hotter and mostly dry with afternoon high temperatures rising into the lower 90s, and quite possibly pushing the mid-90s mid-week.
Humidity will be slowly on the rise next week as high pressure finally slips south of us by the end of the week, bringing back moist southerly Gulf winds.
Rain chances for Acadiana are expected to overall remain below normal through the next week to 10 days...so whatever rainfall you may have received Wednesday morning, will likely have to do for our gardens and lawns for at least a week, and probably more!
