There was the welcomed sound of raindrops hitting my roof this morning when I awoke early this morning. It looks as if that rain is moving out of the area and we all know what that means. The abundant moisture and the late June sunshine will combine to make today feel very oppressive outside.

For folks attending the Brian Badon Memorial Concert in Rayne today and tonight the rain won't be an issue but the heat might be. Fortunately organizers have made sure there will be plenty of cold drinks available.

The forecast for Sunday according Daniel Phillips of KATC TV 3 is calling for not quite as much heat and a little less humidity as a summertime cold front will have worked its way through the area. The small break from the norm will be short lived as more heat and humidity works its way back into the forecast for early next week.

The forecast for July 4th does hold a chance of showers or thunderstorms. Right now coverage is forecast at 40% which is typical for this time of year. Most fireworks shows should go off without any threats of inclement weather since most of the thunderstorms should dissipate by the 9pm start times for most shows.
