Heavy Rains Causing Record Flooding In Parts Of Acadiana

Parishes in Northwestern Acadiana got pummeled by intense showers from the remnants of Hurricane Barry overnight into this morning. Evangeline and St. Landry Parishes recorded unofficial rain totals in excess of 13 inches in less than 24 hours. Bands of rain will continue to affect Acadiana this afternoon, however, the shower activity should become a little more scattered later this evening. The showers will help to keep temperatures below average in the mid-80s today but the humidity will make it feel like it is in the mid to upper 90s. Tuesday expect scattered shower activity that should eventually turn more isolated throughout the day. We return to those summer-like temperatures on Wednesday with highs in the low 90s and we might get a few peeks of sunshine as well. Stay safe if you have to venture out today.
