A Summer-Like Workweek with Afternoon Rain Chances

Local

Typical mid-June weather is expected for Acadiana this workweek as we keep a watchful eye on the southern Gulf of Mexico for tropical development.

Highs for the rest of the week will be in the low 90s with a heat index between 100°-105°. We will see a chance of storms each day with the better chance tomorrow, then rain chances will be a little lower Wednesday & Thursday. Lows will be in the mid 70s.

Further down south in the Gulf of Mexico, a broad area of low pressure is spinning in the Bay of Campeche.  The National Hurricane Center has a 60% chance this becomes a tropical depression in the next 5 days.  If it becomes better organized into a tropical storm the next name on the list is Bill or Claudette.  Regardless of strength and organization, tropical moisture will surge northward towards Acadiana this weekend.  As of this morning, tropical showers and storms look likely Saturday and Sunday.  Flash flooding will be the primary risk for our area but depending on the path we could see a low threat for strong winds and tornadoes too.
