When travelling, it's generally smart to pack in preparation for rain or any other conditions that may arise. The rainfall in Gatwick is roughly less than Lafayette. You can assume this to be the case over the next 10 days.
Expect the weather to be around 34 °C on average in August. As the temperature peaks, try to get your plans done early, as flight price and availability will have an impact on your travels. The climate in Lafayette is generally hotter than in Gatwick.
