Lafayette Weather – Rain Chances Increase For Friday & Saturday
With four great teams set to play NCAA Softball in town beginning Friday, the last thing we want to see is a forecast with rain and thunderstorms. Well, that's what we are looking at according the weather experts at KATC TV-3.
Forecasters are seeing signs that a nice push of very moist air will move into Acadiana by Friday and this will give Mother Nature all she needs to rain on our parade, softball game, cookout, or celebration. Now it doesn't look the weekend will be a total washout. Showers will be scattered and more likely to occur in the afternoon and early evening hours.
The outlook for severe weather by the Storm Prediction Center does not suggest any of the showers or thunderstorms will reach severe limits, at least at this time that kind of activity is not expected.
The current forecast for the area calls for minimal chance of showers today. By tomorrow, Friday, rain chances could be at least 60% or greater in parts of Acadiana. That rain chance will decrease in the overnight hours and then fire back up to a 50% chance of rain during the day on Saturday. Sunday's forecast calls for a mix of clouds and sun and a 30% chance of rain.
