Drier, hazier skies set to arrive for Friday.
Good Thursday afternoon Acadiana! It was another day with rounds of scattered showers and storms across the area as a weak surface low spun just off to our west which helped send rounds of storms our way through the course of the day. These storms should begin to dissipate as we head through the evening and overnight tonight.
Lows tonight will drop into the mid 70s under cloudy skies
The upper-level feature that has been responsible for our increased rain chances these last few days will finally move eastward and out of the area as we head into Friday. High pressure will look to move in and with dusty skies in place, our rain chances will be limited to around 20% for an isolated storm or two in the afternoon.
There will still be plenty of moisture around for the weekend that once daytime heating sets in each afternoon, a few scattered storms should be able to get going. Not a washout or even as widespread as the storm activity was this past week, but we'll keep rain chances sitting at around 40-50% through the weekend.
A pretty typical summertime pattern is looking to shape up for next week as highs top out in the upper 80s with rain chances at around 30%. Have a great end to the work week, y'all!
In the tropics: No new developments expected in at least the next 5 days.
