Isolated Storms to Kick Off Holiday Weekend

  • Updated
  • 0
It's been a very warm and sunny end of the week for a lot of us across Acadiana, but as we head into tonight, moisture will arrive from the northeast which will allow for a few storms to fire up by Saturday afternoon. 
Temperatures will warm up into the upper 80s Saturday under partly to mostly cloudy skies. A few thunderstorms will fire up across the region, but they're going to be small and rather isolated. Thus, most folks will remain dry, and any rain that does move in will exit quickly. 
The rest of the weekend will provide even lower rain and thunder chances, with slightly warmer temperatures and higher humidity. In fact, daytime temperatures will be in the low 90s, but heat indices will be in the mid to upper 90s.
Tonight: Few added clouds. Isolated sprinkle. Low: 68.
Saturday: Partly sunny with isolated showers and storms. High: 89.
Saturday night: Mostly clear to partly cloudy. Low: 69.
Sunday: Mix of clouds. A bit more humid. High: 90.
As we kick off the following workweek, rain chances will start to increase. A slow-moving area of low pressure will slide along the Gulf Coast bringing showers and thunderstorms to Acadiana starting Tuesday afternoon. By Wednesday and Thursday, scattered thunderstorms will be more prevalent before this system slides to the east to close out the week.
