Steamy, sweltering afternoon across the area. Heat index values will remain in the upper 90s to low 100s through 7-8PM.
Tonight…a weak frontal boundary will inch its way southward towards Acadiana! Most forecast models show the front passing by noon…but the truth is…it will still be hot! But, the humidity will be more bearable in the afternoon with a north wind at 5-10mph. High temps in the low-middle 90s, and overnight lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Rain chances will be slim-none, aside from a few coastal thunderstorm Wednesday & Thursday.
By Friday-Saturday…a few pop up storms possible, mainly in the late afternoon hours.
Deeper moisture will aid in slightly more rain coverage by Sunday-Tuesday, with high temps in the low 90s.
In the tropics: Nothing going on in the Atlantic! A vastly different story near Hawaii, as the island faces the largest hurricane threat since Hurricane Iniki in 1992. Hurricane Lane is now a Cat 4 with max winds of 155mph. Hurricane Watches for all of Hawaii. Major rain event, even if the storm doesnt make a direct landfall.
Have a great week!
