Lafayette Weather – Still More Rain Possible
Acadiana had a very nice stretch of warm sunny weather in the middle of May and it looks like we’re paying the freight for what we’ve already enjoyed.
Over the past couple of days many locales in Acadiana have seen rainfall amounts in excess of 10 inches. The bad news is there is more to come. The good news is the showers and storms will be more widely scattered.
Dave Baker’s current forecast has our rain chance at 60% for the day. The better chance of getting wet with that 60% chance of rain will come in the afternoon hours. The rainfall should taper off toward sunset and there might actually be some breaks in the clouds during the night time hours.
The current radar scans across the region this morning from the National Weather Service in Lake Charles and the KATC Power Doppler HD are rather quite. There is a scattered storm right along the coast of Cameron Parish. The Storm Prediction Center forecast rain and thunderstorms for the area but nothing severe at this time.
The outlook for the weekend does show significant improvement with rain chances decreasing. Don’t put your umbrella away just yet though, there is a still a chance of showers and and thunderstorms in the forecast through Sunday. It’s just not as likely.
