SYNOPSIS... Central Louisiana will be sandwiched in between a trof that will be developing to our west and a ridge to our east for the next several days. This weather pattern will result in daily doses of heat, humidity and rain/t-storm possibilities as the southerly flow continues to dominate. Also, isolated severe weather and isolated flooding are very possible as well each and every day this week.

RAINFALL FORECAST through Sunday, 5/31/2020: According to multiple sources, Central Louisiana is looking at anywhere from 1 to 4 inches, with isolated areas seeing 4-6+ inches over the next week. Flooding may become a big concern by late in the week. Stay tuned.

SUNDAY EVENING... Warm and muggy. Temperatures dipping into the lower to upper 70s by the 10 pm hour. Partly to mostly cloudy skies. South-southeast winds of 2-10 mph. Scattered (30-40%) showers and t-storms remain very possible through the evening hours.

SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING... Warm and muggy conditions persisting. Temperatures bottoming out in the middle 60s to the middle 70s. Partly to mostly cloudy skies. East-southeast winds of 2-10 mph. Rain activity is expected to end around the Midnight hour if not shortly after on Sunday night. Patchy fog in spots is possible on Monday morning.

MONDAY AFTERNOON (MEMORIAL DAY)... Warm and muggy conditions persisting. Temperatures rising into the 80s to around 90 degrees. Partly to mostly cloudy skies. Breezy to windy conditions, with south-southeast winds of 5-15 mph, with gusts of 20-25 or more possible. Scattered (70%) showers and t-storms are very possible. Heavy rainfall and isolated severe t-storms are very possible as well.

MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY MORNING... Warm and muggy conditions continue! Temperatures bottoming out in the middle 60s to the middle 70s. Partly to mostly cloudy skies. East-southeast winds of 2-10 mph. A stray (10%) overnight shower or t-storm remains possible. Patchy fog in spots is possible on Tuesday morning.

TUESDAY AFTERNOON... Slightly cooler afternoon temperatures. Temperatures rising into the upper 70s to the middle 80s. Partly to mostly cloudy skies. Breezy to windy conditions, with south-southeast winds of 5-15 mph, with gusts of 20-25 mph or more possible. Scattered (60%) showers and t-storms are very possible.
