An upper level low is currently residing over Louisiana, and is contributing to our thunderstorm coverage. It is also drawing a deep layer of moisture into the area helping fuel our thunderstorm potential. It seems as if the deepest moisture levels are concentrated to the western parts of the state. Expect a wet Sunday and even afternoon thunderstorms by Monday. However, by Monday evening, a ridge pattern should begin to dominate the area, bringing with it drier air from the NW. This pattern of high heights and drier air should keep rain at bay for the rest of the week, thus creating a fairly dry forecast. However, expect temperatures to climb to the mid 90s, and potentially the upper 90s by next week. It can be assumed that heat indices will surpass 100 degrees during the forecast period.
