Continuous News and Weather for Acadiana

Eric Zernich

Hot and sticky Father’s Day

The summerlike heat and humidity is back, and it looks like it will be sticking with us until about late September.

Pleasant weather continues through Thursday

Thank you June cool front as it felt amazing today.

If you were stuck at work all day make sure you get outside this evening to enjoy the pleasant temperatures and humidity.

Drier air brings lower humidity to Acadiana this week

Monday night into Tuesday morning a rare, June “cool” front will push drier and slightly cooler air into Acadiana leading to a few pleasant days this week.

Behind the front on Tuesday highs will be below average in the mid 80s and with dew points in the lower 60s making it will feel really comfortable to be outside.

Spring cool front to bring drier air to Acadiana this week

The heat is going to hang on for one more day to start the work week with highs Monday afternoon topping out in the low to mid 90s.

But during the afternoon a cool front will be working through Acadiana which could spark off a couple isolated showers but rain chances only look to be about 20% or less.

Great pool weather on Sunday

The heat continues Sunday with highs in the mid 90s but thanks to a northwesterly flow again the humidity won’t be too bad making it a perfect day to enjoy the pool.

Coastal Flood Advisory issued along South Louisiana

With the approach of a tropical disturbance the next few days winds will increase out of the south pushing Gulf water onshore.

Thus, a Coastal Flood Advisory has been issued for Calcaseiu, Cameron, Iberia, St. Mary and Vermilion parishes from 1 AM Wednesday until 1 PM on Friday.

Amount of water to be released when Morganza is opened

With the opening of the Morganza Spillway now scheduled for Sunday June 9th here is a look at the amount of water that will flow into the basin.

This year it will be a gradual release of water through the spillway.

How did the Mississippi River get so high this Spring

As we prepare for the opening of the Morganza Spillway this Sunday here is a review of the last few months to figure why there is so much water in the Mississippi River this year.

Here is a look at the river levels for the Mississippi at Baton Rouge since the start of 2019.

Stray showers Tuesday; better rain chances towards the end of the week

On Tuesday the ridge of high pressure to our east will slide a little closer to Acadiana helping to increase the sea breeze off the Gulf with winds picking up to about 10-15 mph.

That sea breeze will provide just enough lift in the atmosphere to get a couple isolated showers to fire up throughout Acadiana, especially during the late morning and early afternoon hours.

More Summer-like heat and humidity

With the upper level ridge entrenched over the southeast we will continue to see more hot and humid conditions this Memorial Day weekend.

Scattered storms likely Sunday morning

Late tonight into Sunday morning the tail end of the line of storms will try to work across Acadiana producing scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Timing for these storms will start about 4 am for our northwestern parishes, reach Lafayette between 7-8 am before clearing St. Mary parish about noon.

Scattered showers to return this weekend

What more can you say about the weather this week then absolutely perfect and it will continue Thursday and Friday.

Highs on Thursday might even be a degree lower at about 87-88 as winds turn a little more southerly creating a sea breeze off the Gulf. 

Beautiful start to the work week

High pressure will slide over the region Monday creating an absolutely fantastic day with mostly sunny skies and seasonal temperatures in the low to mid 80s.

Dry and sunny Mother’s Day

Overnight, a cool front will push through Acadiana, finally clearing out all the rain and creating a nice, dry Mother’s Day.

Another round of heavy showers/storms Friday morning

Some scattered showers will continue this evening but most of us will get several hours of dry weather to help the flood water drain.

And we need things to drain as much as possible tonight as another round of heavy showers and storms moving into Acadiana early Friday morning.
