An upper-level low spinning across Missouri and Iowa continues to provide atmospheric lift to generate showers and storms across the eastern parts of the country with some of the activity extending into portions of Acadiana today thanks to an outflow boundary.

The wild card today was some Saharan moving in from the Gulf.

It is always interesting to see how the dust interacts with the weather pattern this time of year.

Fair to partly skies will be in place tonight as overnight lows drop into the middle 70s.

Some of the energy associated with another complex of storms currently across the ArkLaTex will try and move into northern portions of Acadiana later on tonight.

I'll maintain a 30% chance for those storms.

The SPC has most of Acadiana locked in for a marginal (level 1 out of 5) risk for an isolated storm that could be capable of producing gusty winds.

Like we saw with the first complex this afternoon, storms will generally weaken as they progress father south.

That upper-level feature will continue to linger around tomorrow, so a similar set-up will likely take shape with scattered downpours developing in the morning and through portions of the afternoon, especially for areas along and north of the interstate.

Otherwise, expect a mixture of sun and clouds out there with a little bit of haze/dust mixed in as well.

High temperatures will top out near 90.

By Tuesday, a typical summertime pattern will take hold across Acadiana with partly cloudy skies and scattered showers and storms developing for the afternoon as the sea-breeze kicks in.

That is the way it will go for the rest of the week with rain chances sitting around 40% just about each and every afternoon.

Temperatures will settle into to where they should for this time of year... nothing too out of the ordinary this week weather-wise!

In the tropics:

No new developments expected in at least the next 5 days.
