Front will begin to move back northward tonight-tomorrow.  A rounds of showers & storms will occur with it tonight-tomorrow morning to midday.

We should stay in the 50s & 60s through morning.  As we dry in the afternoon & the front slowly moves northward, we should see a temperature rally to 74 at Lafayette.  80 could occur in the south.  The far north may stay in the 60s all day.

In terms of sun, much of the day will be cloudy, but breaks in the clouds for some sun will develop in the central & southern areas by afternoon-evening.

It will actually be a record warm overnight tomorrow night with temperatures around 70 with gusty southerly winds.  Even areas that are in the 60s tomorrow will rise to near 70 overnight. 

A windy, warm, humid Saturday is ahead with highs 81-86 with a mix of clouds & sun.

The morning to midday & even early afternoon is dry.  However, notice how storms flare up after 3 p.m.

These will increase through evening.  An isolated severe storm cannot be ruled out.

Rainfall totals now-Saturday 6 p.m.

Showers & storms will be with us Saturday night to Sunday morning.  It still looks as if much of the rainfall will move north & northwest of the area by Sunday afternoon.  It looks breezy to windy, warm & humid with highs 78-84.

Monday looks dry, partly cloudy, windy, warm & humid with highs of 84-88.  A few isolated storms may return for Tuesday & Wednesday (mainly in the afternoon & evening) with warm, windy highs in the 80s.

Widespread rainfall with storms is likely Wednesday night to Thursday. 

Highs Friday-Saturday may only run in the 50s.  Frost & freezing is possible late next weekend-beginning of the next week.

A total of 2-5" of rainfall still seems reasonable for now-next Thursday.
