Dry and warmer conditions for the start of June.

Just about all of Acadiana remained dry Sunday afternoon with temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 80s.

We'll drop back into the lower 70s for Monday morning with fair to partly cloudy skies.

Monday looks pretty similar to the last couple of days as most of Acadiana will remain dry with only a 10% chance of an isolated storm mainly for our coastal parishes. We'll likely see some higher clouds move into the region by the afternoon as high temperatures climb to the upper 80s and close to 90.

The rest of the work week looks pretty June-ish as we will see daily afternoon rain chances through Friday with temperatures sitting in the upper 80s.

Rain chances are looking to stay on the higher side by late week into next weekend as deep tropical moisture will surge northward from the southern Gulf of Mexico. It's still a little too early at this point to nail down specifics such as rain totals and developments, but the bottom line is that we are likely entering a more unsettle pattern on the backside of the 10 day forecast. Have a great week, y'all!

In the tropics: With the turn of the calendar to June, the Atlantic hurricane season has officially begun. Sure enough, we are tracking the potential for tropical development in the southern Gulf of Mexico later this week. The National Hurricane Center has bumped up the chances for development to 50% with this area. The setup is for the remnants of Tropical Storm Amanda in the East Pacific to cross over Central America bringing some of its leftover moisture into the Bay of Campeche. There is the possibility that we see a broad area of low pressure develop in the southwestern Gulf later this work week. Models are hinting at this thinking, but keep in mind we are still several days out and the pattern will evolve in the coming days as the models come into better agreement with one another. Regardless of development, the added moisture/humidity surging northward from this area will elevate our rain chances later this week and into next weekend.
