Adjust Comment Print

STAYING RAINY, CLOUDY: Rain chances come back Wednesday with slightly higher winds at 5-10MPH. We could see anywhere from a half inch to an inch of rain.

Beginning Monday morning moderate to heavy showers and storms will start to roll through Acadiana and continue through much of the afternoon before slowly dissipating as we move into the evening hours.

More dry weather is expected for a good part of this week, with just a slight chance of a few late showers and storms late Tuesday into Wednesday. Highs will be warmer in the upper 70s to around 80° but certainly could be cooler if there's more rain that keeps temperatures cooler.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy with the chance for rain/showers in the afternoon. Scattered showers and storms remain possible but not everyone will see rain. After 3pm, the rest of the day should be mainly dry. Periods of rain are likely on Thursday with lingering showers continuing into Friday. The high temperature is expected to be in the lower eighties that day. Highs today reach into the mid to upper 50s. Lows in the low and mid 60s.

On Wednesday, severe storms are will be possible yet again.

East winds at 5-10 miles per hour. With partly sunny skies, the air aloft will support low-80s near the ground; we are projecting a high of around 81 inland, but 70s at the beaches, where the sea breeze will cool things off. A cold front will move through Monday then stall to our south allowing waves of low pressure to keep us dreary for several days. Highs will be in the low-70s.
