Temperatures stay up; Humidity comes down for Sunday

Posted at 6:22 PM, Sep 05, 2020

Happy weekend, y'all! A few scattered storms will be possible this evening as a weakening front pushes through the area.

Temperatures this evening and overnight tonight will be a little more bearable as they settle in closer to the lower 70s compared to the upper 70s.

Although we won't see a drastic change in our high temperatures on Sunday, the frontal passage will bring down our dew points and humidity values which will make it feel at least a little less oppressive out there.

Drier air will also filter into the area helping to bring down our rain chances for Sunday.

A pretty quiet and hot weather pattern looks to take shape through at least the early parts of the upcoming week before the forecast then becomes more interesting.

The upper level pattern continues to support a deepening trough coming out of Canada and swinging through the U.S. for the mid and latter part of the week.

If this pattern comes to fruition, we would likely see a fall-like cool front sweep through the area sometime late next week.

In fact, over the last couple of days, models have been coming into better agreement with that scenario.

We are still close to about a week out, so we won't get overly excited just yet, but do know that the potential for lower humidity and slightly cooler temperatures is still there.

We will continue to monitor the pattern and I think by Monday we should have a better handle on the forecast.

In the tropics: We are monitoring three areas at this time.

The first of which is in the Caribbean Sea, but only has about a 10% to develop in the coming days. We'll keep an eye on it but nothing to stress over.

The other two areas are close to the African Coast and both have a high chance to develop in the next 5 days, but models continue to want to re-curve these areas out to sea. They remain no threat to Acadiana.
