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. 

Weather stays on a roll…

A favorably dry and pleasant weather pattern will continue for Acadiana over the next couple of days before changes arrive into the weekend.

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 stormy day Saturday; Flash Flood Watch continues

Acadiana remains under the gun for additional locally heavy rains and storms through Saturday night before the threat finally diminishes Sunday morning. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for all of Acadiana through 7pm Saturday for the potential of 2-3″ of rain or more possible through Saturday evening.

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.

Acadiana stays in “on and off” stormy pattern through Saturday

Acadiana will stay in an “on and off” stormy pattern over the next several days as a series of upper level disturbances continue to interact with a quasi-stationary surface boundary that has been draped across Eastern Texas into Northwestern Louisiana.

Storms may arrive sooner than later…

As of late Friday evening, the latest Predictive Radar (HRRR) Model has upped the timing for showers and storms arriving into Acadiana by daybreak Saturday.

Stormy Saturday, sunny Sunday

Acadiana remains on track for a stormy Saturday with the risk of a few severe storms and locally a couple of inches of rain. A vigorous upper level disturbance will ignite more showers and storms across Texas overnight through Saturday morning with activity migrating across Acadiana during the morning through midday hours.

Staying warm, storms likely Saturday

The weather pattern for Acadiana will continue in its “summer preview” mode over the next few days with a subtle increase in the chance of an isolated shower or storm through Friday.

Taste of early summer continues…rain chances spike Saturday

A taste of early summer will continue for Acadiana over the next several days with partly to mostly cloudy skies, breezy, warm and humid conditions to finish out the week. Gusty southeasterly winds will continue during the day Wednesday feeding more strong to severe storms that will continue to pound portions of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri.

Wait, what? No cool fronts for more than a week

Acadiana’s weather pattern has slipped into the pre-summer doldrums with a mixture of clouds & sun, breezy, warm and humid conditions anticipated for the entire week. Rain chances however, will gradually rise by the end of the week, and most especially, into the weekend.

Warm and humid end to April

After a picture perfect weekend for Festival International we are going to be moving towards a warmer and more humid pattern for the new work week.
