Temperatures will push back into the low 90s again today under partly cloudy skies. There will be a slight chance for an isolated afternoon shower or thunderstorm, but chances will stay at 20% or less again.
Stable air, thanks to high pressure centered over the Florida panhandle and extending westward along the Gulf Coast will keep the weather pattern normal and fairly quiet. Normal highs this time of year are around 91-92 degrees and lows normally in the lower 70s. We've seen that pattern all week and it should hold us through the weekend.
Storms are more likely around the periphery of the ridge through Texas and into the upper Midwest. As the ridge breaks down early next week some of those storms will move back into Acadiana.
Hot and humid today with a high near 92, heat index near 95, and a 20% chance for a storm.
Tonight, storms will end during the evening, lows near 75.
Saturday and Sunday highs in the low to mid 90s under partly cloudy skies. Slight chance for a storm.
Next week a better chance for storms with highs in the 80s.
