As a weak boundary continues to be situated along the Gulf Coast Sunday into early next week our weather is going to be pretty much the same everyday.

That means you can expect a fair amount of sunshine in the morning warming highs into the upper 80s to near 90 with feel like temperatures in the mid to upper 90s.

Then during the afternoon there will be a 50-60% chance for a scattered showers or storms Sunday through Wednesday.

These will be the typical 30-40 minute showers/storms that produce a tenth to a quarter of an inch of rain, with the heaviest showers dropping up to an inch of rain.

By Thursday and Friday the boundary will dissipate and a surface high will move closer to us in the Gulf dropping rain chances slight down to 30-40% during the afternoon.

With a few less showers and a bit more sunshine temperatures should be able to climb into the lower 90s Thursday and Friday with heat indices approaching the triple digits.

Now, towards the end of the work week we will be watching a deep pool of tropical moisture moving into the southern Gulf.

Saturday's models have this tropical moisture riding up the Texas coast and heading for Acadiana by next weekend.

The latest models are NOT showing any tropical development at this time but this moisture looks to create high rain chances for Acadiana beginning Saturday afternoon/evening and continuing into Sunday as this wave slowly moves inland through the pelican state.

However, we will be monitoring this closely as it could cause the potential for heavy rains (3-6 inches) and flooding in Acadiana.
