Rain chances look to stay on the higher side for most of this week.

Good afternoon and Happy Father's Day! A few scattered storms were able to get going this afternoon across Acadiana with the heating of the day, but all in all it wasn't too bad out there for dad. Highs topped out in the lower 90s with plenty of humidity.. you may have felt it walking out the door at any point today!

We'll stay muggy overnight tonight into Monday as lows drop into the mid 70s.

Rain chances ramp up as we head through the day on Monday as strong southerly flow will be in place. Once daytime heating sets in, we'll likely see the storms start firing up across Acadiana. The storm activity should get going by mid to late morning and continue through the evening time frame.

The unsettle weather pattern will continue for the bulk of the work week as southerly flow remains in place and a couple of upper-level disturbances will be moving in from the west. This, along with abundant available Gulf moisture, will keep rain chances on the high side through Thursday.

As we round out the week and head into next weekend, it appears drier air from the east will be moving in to help bring our rain chances down. Additionally, Saharan dust moving in from the tropical Atlantic by late week should also help to lower rain chances. Y'all have a great week... despite the higher rain chances!

In the tropics: Saharan layer dust moving across the Atlantic is expected to keep the tropics quiet for at least the next several days.
