Tuesday's weather pattern brought more scattered rain to central Louisiana.
Like Monday, rainfall amounts today were modest. Despite 60% coverage, I did not hear of any amounts over one inch. Jonesville reported the highest total with 0ne-half inch, followed by Leesville with 0.42 inches, and Pitkin with 0.41 inches.
The massive high pressure cell aloft, currently extending from the Corn Belt eastward to the Atlantic Coast, will build westward and weaken during the next two days. This pattern will place central Louisiana on the southern periphery of this high. This position, combined with the weakening trend, will spare us from a heat wave. However, temperatures will rise, especially Thursday, and rain chances will be lower over the next two days.
