Off and on tropical rain bands likely again for Sunday.

Hello Acadiana! Scattered thundershowers will continue through the course of the evening before most of the activity begins to quiet down after sunset.

Lows tonight into Sunday morning will drop back into the mid 70s.

Sunday we will likely see another round of tropical rain bands moving through the area. Some of that activity will begin to develop in the morning along our coastal parishes and look to build inland through the course of the afternoon. Very similar to today, it will not be raining all day long, but rather a few rounds of tropical thundershowers can be expected. Highs will top out in the low to mid 80s under mainly cloudy skies.

The weather pattern will remain somewhat active for the start of the work week as high moisture values and a tropical flow remain locked in place. No particular days are looking like washouts, but scattered showers and storms will remain in the forecast through midweek.

By the latter part of the upcoming week, rain chances will return back to normal as high temperatures return to the lower 90s just in time for the start of August. Y'all enjoy the rest of the weekend!

In the tropics: Hurricane Hanna has made landfall in southern Texas as a healthy category 1 hurricane. Life threatening surge and rainfall are expected for parts of the Texas coast. Impacts to Acadiana have not changed. The storm will continue to move inland through the day on Sunday as it continues to weaken.

Elsewhere in the tropics, Gonzalo has fallen apart, but a tropical wave behind it now has a 70% chance to develop in the next several days. This will likely be our next named storm in the Atlantic, but it is still way too early to tell where it will end up. continue to follow the KATC storm team for the very latest.
