Back to the August heat and humidity on Friday with highs in the low to mid 90s and feel like temperatures pushing 103-107°.

Now, with the showers the past couple days the ground is fairly wet so I will keep a small rain chance Friday afternoon at 20-30% for a few pop-up showers to overcome the drier air aloft otherwise most of us will stay dry.

For the weekend it is back to the typical summertime pattern with highs in the lower 90s and a 30-40% chance for daily afternoon showers, especially on Sunday.

No real change in the pattern for next week so it will be more of the same with hot and humid conditions in the morning giving way to hit or miss showers and storms in the afternoon.

By the second half of the work week it does look like some slightly drier air aloft and Saharan dust will move over Acadiana, which could lower our rain chances down to 30% for Thursday and Friday afternoon.

The bigger story towards the end of next week is what might happen in the Gulf.

Thursday's models have shifted the deep tropical more to the south with a low end chance that maybe a tropical depression could form and head for the lower Texas coast.

This is still about a week out so things will change and as it gets closer we will get a better idea what, if anything, will happen but just know we are monitoring it.
