Scattered storms possible for Tuesday... Hotter and drier for late week

Posted at 3:56 PM, Jul 06, 2020

Some scattered storms return for Tuesday.

Good afternoon everyone! It was one of those days where some areas saw heavy rainfall while others actually stayed relatively dry. Some scattered showers will remain through the evening, but most of us should remain quiet.

Lows tonight will drop back into the mid 70s.

Tuesday should start off on the quiet side with maybe an isolated storm or two mainly along our coastal parishes. Very similar to today, we should see some scattered storms around the area heading into the afternoon thanks to an upper disturbance still lurking near the area. However, some spots may see heavy downpours while others look to miss out on the action. Rain chances will sit at 40%. Since we are still in a very saturated air mass, any one storm will be capable of producing heavy rainfall rates where some localized flooding may be an issue. We should also remain relatively cloudy throughout the day with some peaks of sunshine possible. Highs will top out in the mid 80s.

Wednesday appears to be a transition day as the upper disturbance looks to move out of the area. Some scattered storms will be possible before high pressure really builds in for late week to help dry things out, but also warm us up. Highs will top out in the low to mid 90s later this week and into the weekend. Y'all have a great week!

In the tropics: Only one main area of interest that is actually currently over land. NHC giving it about a 40% chance to develop in the next 5 days as it parallels the eastern seaboard. The system is no threat to Acadiana.
