Your 7 Day Forecast

Updated:
We’ll see a mix of clouds and sun through the morning as rain holds off for now.  Late-night storms from last evening have ended for all of SW Louisiana and we are left we temperatures in the low 70s this morning thanks to the rain.  Through the morning sun will gradually increase meaning that temperatures will warm up through the 80s to around 90 by the noon hour.  A weakening area of upper level low pressure in the vicinity will combine with daytime heating to spark late-afternoon showers and storms across the area with about a 40% chance today.  By Friday, the upper low will weaken and depart the area being replaced by high pressure at the surface that will really begin to limit the amount of showers and storms that fire up during the day.  We’ll go with a 20% coverage of afternoon storms Friday through the weekend with mainly sunny skies.  Temperatures will be slightly warmer for the weekend topping out around 93 each day with heat index values in the range of 100-105.  The tropics remain quiet and no new development is anticipated for at least the next few days.
