Rain chances coming down; temperatures back up

Posted at 4:36 PM, Jul 29, 2020

Overall coverage of rainfall was lower on Wednesday and it'll be even lower heading into Thursday and Friday.

Low temperatures across Acadiana tonight and into Thursday morning will drop back into the mid 70s under partly cloudy skies.

The upper disturbance that had plagued the area with rainfall earlier this week has finally pushed out and high pressure is looking to build in from the Gulf of Mexico.

This will allow most of us to start drying out but... to also heat up. High temperatures will return to the lower 90s as we head into late week.

By the weekend we will be watching an upper-level trough dig in from the north which may help to bring our rain chances back up slightly. Those rain chances will sit at around 40% for scattered activity mainly in the afternoon as our high temperatures top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

A more typical August-like pattern will set up for the majority of next week as rain chances return to around 20-30% with high temperatures in the lower 90s. Y'all have a good one!
