Monday Morning Forecast: Rain is the weather story for the first half of the week
The excessive heat is out, and the rain is in.
Today & Tonight: For the first time in 10 days, South Louisiana is not under any type of heat warning for advisory. Instead today, we will be dealing with rain. A weak cold front is positioned in northern Louisiana and eventually it will push toward our area bringing widespread rain. The bulk of the shower activity will come in the afternoon and evening. Brief heavy downpours will be possible along with localized street and poor drainage flooding. Between the showers, temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s. Overnight conditions will be muggy in the mid-70s.
Up Next: The same rainmaker from Monday will linger in the area on Tuesday and continue to promote widespread showers and storms. Again, the most active time for storms will be in the afternoon and evening. In the sunny spots temperatures will get into the upper 80s otherwise it will be a bit cooler. On Wednesday a few more showers will be left over, but it will be mostly dry. Temperatures will trend in the low 90s for the rest of the week with shower activity very low.
