To say that the weather this passed weekend has been pleasant would be the understatement of the century. The high pressure system that has brought us this weather stays with us on Monday but starts to slide around a bit.
By shifting to our east winds will come out of the south as they wrap around the high bringing in the traditional warmer temperatures and moisture. Meaning that despite still having plenty of sun we will get a few more clouds to start the work week, and temperatures differences will be most noticeable at night when the moisture will keep lows in the 60s.
As the week continues, however, things start to change. A slow increase in cloud cover will finally yield to some showers late Wednesday afternoon. This wet weather will be associated with a front that will move in from the north. At this time it doesn't look like there will be any severe weather with this system.
This front appears to stall along the Gulf of Mexico so chances for light showers will stay across Acadiana from Wednesday into the weekend. None of the shower appear as if they will be seriously heavy rain makers at this time, just light scattered shower activity. I will say though that so far out there is still a lot that can change from this pattern, and some details that need to reveal themselves. Since it is the week of Festival, however, I figured I would give a bit of an extended look.
