The heat will stay on and perhaps amplify a little for Acadiana through Saturday before we get back into a more favorable position for an increase in atmospheric moisture resulting in a better chance of afternoon storms starting Sunday.

In the near term, expect another pleasant evening across the region as any isolated showers diminish around sunset (or sooner).

Low temperatures will drop into the upper 60s to lower 70s thanks to a drier north winds Tuesday.

We'll be back to mostly sunny skies for our Wednesday with highs reaching the lower 90s.

Rain chances Wednesday will likely be closer to 10% but there will be a few healthy isolated storms roaming across the area during the afternoon.

Little change is anticipated for the area Thursday through Saturday with daytime highs persisting between 92-94 degrees...humidity will slowly be on the uptick as well this period.

Moving into Sunday and early the following week, the dominant ridge of high pressure will advance eastward into the Eastern Gulf and Western Atlantic which will get Acadiana in the position to receive deeper tropical moisture squirting northward from the Western Gulf of Mexico.

Rain chances will commensurately increase from near 40% Sunday to roughly 60% early next week.
