Radar indicates the bulk of the rain and storms from Monday has moved east of the area as the upper level disturbance associated with yesterday's rain has departed the area. A nice day is on tap for Saturday with sun and clouds and highs in the mid-70s.

A low pressure system will move across IN and OH on Wednesday, bringing showers and thunderstorms to the area. Temperatures will be cooler, staying in the 60s.

Thursday those small rain chances we were talking about make their way back into the picture.

Severe storms can not be ruled out in some areas.

Friday winds turn out of the southeast pushing warm and humid Gulf air over Acadiana as highs will climb into the upper 80s and feel like temperatures in the low to mid 90s. The high will get to only 72. Northeast wind around 5 miles per hour. Partly sunny, with a high near 65.

Friday night: A 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 1 a.m.

Thursday Night.Mostly clear. Lows in the mid 50s. Heading into the holiday weekend, temperatures are warming but showers and possible thunderstorms threaten holiday plans.

Friday: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1pm.

Sunday Night. Partly cloudy, with a low around 59 degrees. Mostly cloudy; high of 71.

Monday Night.Mostly cloudy. Lows in the 60s. Chance of precipitation is 20 percent. Strong to severe thunderstorms anticipated with each wave Wednesday and Wednesday night. A veil of high clouds dimmed the sun most of the day and that kept temperatures on the cooler side of normal, but not by very much. Mostly sunny, with a high near 86. What looked like a good chance for showers tomorrow morning, now appears to be only a slim chance for a stray shower or two...keeping most of tomorrow dry too.
