Drier and warmer weather is expected through much of this weekend.
Hopefully you were excited as we were to finally get a break from the wetter pattern we've been in this past week! A sun and cloud mix this Friday afternoon will give way to clearer skies Friday evening into Saturday morning. Lows will once again drop into into the upper 60s for Saturday morning. Another comfortable May night is in store for Acadiana.
The upper-level low that was responsible for giving us all of the scattered storms these last few days has finally pushed eastward out of the area. In its wake, northerly winds are in place with a drier atmosphere as well. This will help keep rain chances in check through the weekend as our high temperatures will begin to soar toward the upper 80s to the lower 90s.
Expect the warm-up and drier conditions to continue through at least the first part of the upcoming work week before daily rain chances make a return for the mid and latter part of the week. In simplest terms, the summertime pattern will be fully established across Acadiana through the next several days. The weather is falling right in line with the turn of the calendar to June! Have a great weekend!
In the tropics: The National Hurricane Center is continuing to monitor unorganized convection across the central Atlantic this afternoon. The convection is expected to remain sub-tropical in nature as it treks toward the North Atlantic over the next couple of days posing no threat to land. Otherwise, nothing cooking in the tropics. Continue to follow the KATC storm team for the very latest.
