Forecast Discussion:

A combination of a slow moving low pressure system to our west and higher pressure to our east will create a southerly air flow through the viewing area over the next three days. During that time, temperatures will be at least 5° to 14° above the average high temperature for this time of the year. Our current overcast conditions will give way to partly cloudy to mostly clear skies later this afternoon as a warmer and drier air mass makes its way into the region. Unlike today, tomorrow will be mostly sunny from the get go. The additional sunshine and southerly winds will boost temperatures into the 80s in Lafayette for the first time since September of last year. Afternoon temperatures will remain well above normal through Wednesday, though we’ll catch some more cloud cover as that day progresses. The upper level moisture will originate from the slow moving frontal system to our west. That Low will first bring rain to the region beginning Wednesday evening, but our rain chances will not stop there. There will be a slight chance of rain each through the remainder of this work week and possibly through the end of the weekend. All in all, when this stalled out low finally moves eastward, we may be left with as much as 1” to 2” of rainfall.
