Acadiana's late summer pattern will continue for the last week of summer as high pressure remains dominant in the area through at least mid-week.
The same ridge of high pressure will help to slowly easy Hurricane inland Monday with most of the storm's heavy rains pounding Mexico through Tuesday.
Some of Ingrid's moisture should reach as far north as South Texas with a few inches of rain likely for the Lower Rio Grande Valley.
As for Acadiana, look for mostly sunny and hot weather with highs in the low-mid 90s and suppressed rain chances through Wednesday. A few more clouds and slight rain chances could develop by the end of the week.
Highs in the lower 90s will be likely through the Autumnal Equinox (fall) which occurs Sunday at 3:44pm. Overnight lows will stay in the sultry 70s to finish the summer as well.
Rain chances may increase toward the weekend as deep tropical moisture continues to pool in the Gulf.
Interestingly enough, some of the computer models re-develop another area of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche and the vicinity of the Yucatan Peninsula by next weekend, with any potential system expected to move northeastward perhaps toward South Florida and the Bahamas.
