As we head into Saturday night our pleasant weather pattern will come to an end. An upper level disturbance currently over northern Mexico will move east over the are late tonight and early tomorrow allowing showers to develop across Central Louisiana. In addition, strong southerly winds will help push a warm front towards the coast. Although the front should stay just offshore, we'll see showers and a few thunderstorms develop ahead of the front and move inland. The areas that may see the most rain will be in our southern parishes- Avoyelles, St. Landry, and Allen. Although, all of us can expect at least a slight chance for showers tomorrow morning. Most of the rain should come to an end by noon or shortly after. For the rest of Sunday we can expect warm and humid conditions, with highs reaching 80 degrees in most places.
The warm weather continues through Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday with highs climbing into the mid to upper 80's throughout this period. We'll also keep a slight chance for afternoon showers in the forecast on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Our next big weather system looks to move through on Thursday, bringing a good chance for showers and thunderstorms to the area. Once it moves through we'll clear out and cool down just in time for the weekend.
