It's been a pretty wet day out there as Acadiana gets an influx of moisture that has resulted in plenty of showers and storms across the region, and with moisture continuing to move in there's a few more rounds of rain on the way.

Showers will eventually be winding down as we lose our daytime heating with a few lingering storms continuing on into the evening before eventually fizzling out through the overnight hours.

This break in the rain will only be temporary and we won't get much of a chance to dry out with humidity staying high through the night and feeling quite tropical out there with lows in the 70s.

As we get into Friday the showers and storms will start to build up again similar to the way they did on Thursday and we'll be in for another round of wet weather spreading out across the region.

While there may be a few thunderstorms in the mix, with a couple of strong storms possible, it will be more an issue of wet weather than it will be severe weather without all the necessary ingredients in place for severe storms.

That being said it is the ideal environment for funnel clouds, the tropical funnel clouds we will get through the summer time, these rarely make it down to the ground and are typically scarier looking then they are dangerous.

Similar to Thursday night, showers will start to wind down in the evening on Friday and we'll get a slight break with showers becoming a little more scattered on Saturday, although the radar should still be monitored.

Again this break is temporary as we're looking at another very soggy day on Sunday with a low moving to our north and keeping the showers in place to wrap up the weekend.

Flooding looks to be a bigger issue to our west on the other side of the state line but localized minor flooding shouldn't be ruled out as we're looking at couple more inches of rain over the next couple of days.
