Lafayette Weather – Rain Chances Still High Today & Tomorrow

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday at this time the Power Doppler HD radar from KATC TV 3 and the National Weather Service Radar out of Lake Charles were lit up like the fancy houses on East Bayou Parkway at Christmastime. Today the radar scans on both devices are thankfully much quieter.

Yesterday’s unprecedented rains brought road closures, school closures, stalled cars and a lot of wet socks and shoes to many people Acadiana. Some locations around the area reported over ten inches of rain in backyard rain gauges. That isn’t a good thing because in Louisiana draining is not something we do well.

Today’s outlook still has a significant rain threat for the area. Dave Baker, male model and outstanding meteorologist is calling for a 60% chance of more rain today. However, the rainfall potential for today, we could see at least another inch, is considerably less than yesterday. Those rain chances will remain high through tonight and  tomorrow.

The weekend will still hold a chance of showers and thunderstorms although the current forecast models do not call for a total washout by any means.
