A pleasant morning across Acadiana as temperatures have dropped into the 60s and lower 70s. Humidity levels are lower, so the comfort level is premium by August standards. Dry air is expected to remain in place today and temperatures will warm to near 90. Tonight most areas will drop into the upper 60s and low 70s again, slightly below the normal values.
The dry air mass will start to shift back to the north tonight and tomorrow. A warm front that is along the coast this morning will begin to lift northward overnight and Friday. Humidity levels will gradually return to normal values and a stray shower or thunderstorm will be possible again along the coast by Friday and inland over the weekend. There will be an upper level disturbance that may form over the northern Gulf of Mexico by the end of the weekend, so rain chances look to be highest on Sunday.
Hot and humid weather will settle in again next week with highs in the 90s and lows in the mid 70s.
